Discussion FY2016 Budget Narrative

by Jenny Levine (staff) on Tue, Oct 11, 2016 at 10:37 pm

To close out fiscal year 2016, I've written a narrative outlining highlights from the budget.

To close out fiscal year 2016, I've written a narrative outlining highlights from the budget.

The summary is that we're in the black by about $15,000, primarily because ALA ITTS paid part of my salary for the year in exchange for work on the ALA Connect migration. There are a couple of minor discrepancies I'm still working through with ALA Finance and Accounting, so the final revenue and expense lines are likely to change slightlyt, although not enough to impact the overall trends. Without the ITTS money, I think we would have come out at a deficit of about $2,200. We'll get final budget numbers on October 21st, so I will post the final spreadsheets after that.

I'm happy to answer questions about any of this information.

by Jenny Levine (staff) on Tue, Sep 6, 2016 at 01:59 pm

I've uploaded the final version of our FY17 budget.

It includes the following revisions:

I've uploaded the final version of our FY17 budget.

It includes the following revisions:

  • +$620 = A new charge for using ALA's Moodle installation to run our courses ($155 per course for 4 courses)
  • +$1,445 = A 1% salary increase for staff, as mandated by ALA
  • +$1,834 = A decrease in the expense line for staff benefits
  • - $16,200 = Decrease in revenue because the LITA Board voted to stop running two Midwinter institutes and two Annual preconferences (we'll still run one Annual preconference)
  • + $13,076 = Decrease in expenses for the Midwinter institutes and Annual preconferences we won't be running

In summary, our new bottom line for FY17 is:

  • Total revenues = $342,408 (was $358,608)
  • Total expenses = $351,854 (was $364,540)
  • Net revenue = $(9,446) (was $(5,932))

Please comment if you have any questions, but I'll put this version on the consent agenda for approval at our October Board meeting. This is also the version that will go to the ALA Board and BARC for their October meetings.
