FPLO to SACS translation

PLEASE NOTE: This translation is for PowerBudget PC v5.0 and PowerBudget Mac v2.0
(AKA PowerBudget FPLO) only. PowerBudget PC v6.0 (AKA PowerBudget SACS) uses the 8 SACS fields and no translation is required.


FPLO consists of 4 fields:

Fund
Program
Location
Object

SACS consists of 8 fields:

Fund
Resource
Project Year
Goal
Function
Object
School
Management

FUND: In SACS, at a school site, the Fund is generally 01 and is not entered into PowerBudget FPLO. If different Funds are used, then the Fund # may be added to the Budget Year field.

RESOURCE: Use the Fund field in PowerBudget FPLO to enter the SACS Resource code.

PROJECT YEAR: Not used in PowerBudget FPLO.

GOAL: Use the Program field in PowerBudget FPLO to enter the SACS Goal code.

FUNCTION: Use the Program field in PowerBudget FPLO to enter the SACS Function code.

ie, In PowerBudget FPLO, combine the SACS Goal and Function codes (separated by a -) and enter them in the Program field.

OBJECT: Use the Object field in PowerBudget FPLO to enter the SACS Object code.

SCHOOL: Use the Location field in PowerBudget FPLO to enter the SACS School code.

MANAGEMENT: If it is necessary to track Management codes, then use the Location field. If using Management codes, then DO NOT use the SCHOOL code. The top of every PowerBudget report identifies the SCHOOL or LOCATION that has prepared the report.
