Auxiliary accounts are similar to a business. The mission of this “business” has to benefit the state/university in some way. This account is initially set up for one function but can be used for multiple functions or events.

The auxiliary funds are not time limited.

Budget vs. Cash
With an auxiliary account you are allowed to pay the bills (expenditures) before you collect the money (revenue).
In many ways the budget functions in the way a credit card would (with a limit.) Your cash is like the bank account you use to pay your credit card bill. The “bill”, however does not need to be paid every month like with a real credit card.

When you establish an auxiliary account you set up a budget, the amount you plan on spending during the year from this account. You can start spending out of your budget before you have the cash. Throughout the year you must collect revenue to cover your budget. There will be times when your budget exceeds your cash. You will be given notice of this each month on your Auxiliary Monthly Status Report. You need to pay attention if your budget exceeds your cash because…
** Your cash balance must be POSITIVE on June 30th.

Any cash you have left over at the end of the year rolls over to the next year.

– Maximum budget increase request is limited to YTD TOTALS_CASH – BALANCE AVAILABLE.

**Year-end budget request
Because funds in the auxiliary reserve are not unlimited, a transfer of budget may be a better choice (requires analysis of all auxiliary accounts within your department).
The analysis (attached) shows that 24xx-0301 has a budget of $25,000 and $2,506.54 in expenditures (10% of total budget). Unless the department plans to spend the remainder of that budget ($22,493.46) within the next two months, the Budget office will mostly likely recommend a transfer of budget rather than an increase. The cash balance of $57,772.96 for account 24xx-0301 remains the same, the transfer of budget would simply redistribute the total available budget (see example below).
Example: A request to transfer a budget of $2,500 from 24xx-0301 to 24xx-0303.

Before the transfer:
Account Summary:        24xx-0301        24xx-0302         24xx-0303
Budget                          25,000.00                 –                      –
Expenditures                   2,506.54                 –                      –
Balance                         22,493.46                 –                      –

Cash                             57,772.96          28,301.69         2,448.00

After the transfer:
Account Summary:        24xx-0301          24xx-0302      24xx-0303
Budget                          22,500.00                –                  2,500.00
Expenditures                  2,506.54                 –                      –
Balance                        19,993.46                 –                 2,500.00

Cash                             57,772.96           28,301.69      42,448.00

Please let me know if you have any questions and advise if the transfer of budget option is feasible.
