Reallocation
Overview of the Reallocation Period –

As a change from past years there will only be one phase to work in instead of three as
was the case last year. You will be working in BUD16

Use the Change Value column to enter the amount to change the budget by NOT the
total amount that you want budgeted
•
Use minus signs (a negative number) to reduce a budget. No sign is necessary (a
positive number) to increase a budget
•
Enter text notes for each change, in the following format “*Initials – mm/dd/yyExplanation including the word account. Enter approval information if applicable.
Example : *SCL-1/15/15-Moved $100 from account 710520 to account 704150 (Refer
to Appendix A, Step 13). Please note account, fund, or org, as appropriate
5
• IMPORTANT - Do NOT delete a budget line using the “Delete Record” column. If you do not
want a budget in that account, simply change the budget to zero
• Click on the Calculate button first to enter your changes and to review them
• If the changes you made are incorrect or further reallocation is necessary click on the “Requery” button to undo your most recent unsaved changes
• Use the Summary Totals at the bottom of the screen to double check the changes you made.
There is an account summary for each of the phases. (Refer to Appendix A, Step 18)
• Use the Post button when everything has been reallocated and you are ready to save your
changes. (Refer to Appendix C)
• Banner Web will pre-populate with the account information that you last used, so be sure to
double check the account segments that appear before moving on to the next step
• WARNING - You will be timed-out in Self Service Banner (SSB) after 30 minutes of inactivity.
You will lose your changes for those items that were entered but not calculated or posted

Reallocations

lines.
To add a new budget account, use the Account/Program Code lookup section.
First, click on the title itself, Account/Program Code lookup. If you already know the
account number you can skip to step 5.

Select Account from the Code Type drop-down box

Type in part of the title criteria you want to budget, surrounded by % signs to use the
search function.
Change the Maximum rows to return to return 100 and Execute Query.
Please note that the query results will likely be less than 100.

Reminder: you can access a list of account codes and definitions at the following link:
http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/administration/vpfin/controller/payment/banner

desired account code and Close Window. There is no automatic
population from this screen.

of change and the from-and-to account codes.

budget added.

that text exists on that line.
