How to Budget Core OneTime Funds on Form 4.3


In the Oracle Planning and Budgeting Tool, also known as Enterprise Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (EPBCS), budget preparers use Task List 4 to budget non-compensation expenses for Core Funds. To plan a Core One-Time Budget, updates are made on Form 4.3 Review and Realign Core One-Time Budget. Form 4.3 will display any Staff & Faculty compensation budget data completed in Task Lists 1 and 2. Form 4.3 will also display any one-time funding amounts committed to the specific FinUnit-Fund-Function-Project combination that were recorded by the Campus Budget Office or a VC/Dean’s Office in the Resource Commitment Tracking Tool.
