Hopefully you've received notifications that I've uploaded the following three documents:

The narrative is a short analysis of relevant major revenue and expense lines for the first quarter. The full budget is an Excel spreadsheet with details of every project line, while the summary budget spreadsheet gives you a broad overview of the data. Note that I also submitted the narrative to ALA for their general overview to the Board, Budget Analysis & Review Committee, and Council.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the information in these public documents.

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.
