Budget Revenue & Expense Summary

The Budget Revenue & Expense Summary is a report summarizing the month-to-date and year-to-date statement. The report includes the annual allotment, month-to-date expenditures, year-to-date expenditures, the unexpended balance, and the percent of the total budget expended for the various categories of expenditures in the cost center. This report is to be monitored by the person controlling the cost center to assure that expenditures stay within the limitations of the budget.
