25.7 PPV Project Accounting with Unique Identification Code

(Last Modified on May 14, 2015)

Each PPV project for which a Cash Flow Report is submitted will be assigned a unique ID code after the following numbering protocol: PPV / Institution Business Unit / 01 / 000. For example, PPV9901000 would be the PPV Peachtree Square Project (#01) located at Peachtree State University (Business Unit #99). The last three digits (000) may be used at the university’s discretion or may be omitted altogether from coding in the institution’s financial system of record.

25.7.1 Budget by PPV Project ID

(Last Modified on May 14, 2015)

Effective in Fiscal Year 2016, institutions should establish budgets in the APPROP (and, optionally, ORG) ledgers, and establish revenue budgets in the REVEST ledger

  • Example for PPV9901000:

    APPROP Ledger: 700000 12210 5010111 21100 42100 PPV9901000

    REVEST Ledger: 451000 12210 5010111 21100 42100 PPV9901000

Please note that budgeting for projects (with the project id) in the APPROP and ORG ledgers will be effective with the 2016 budget year. If the activity for a PPV project spans both the 2015 and 2016 budget years, users may view that activity by running the Budget Activity Report, using the department criteria or by using a query such as the BOR_GL_PROJ_TO_DATE, which shows all ACTUALS activity for a project id.

25.7.3 How to Access the nVision Report

(Last Modified on May 14, 2015)

An nVision report is available in PeopleSoft that will display all project activity that has been recorded using an assigned project ID code. The report is in an Excel format and run by project ID code. The report can be printed or saved as a file. If there is no data in PeopleSoft associated with a particular project ID, a report will still generate but will display all zeros. A reference guide for the below steps is located on the PPV website.

  • Once you have signed into PeopleSoft, select Reporting Tools within the Menu display in the left margin.
  • Select the PS/nVision folder and then Define Report Request.
  • Click the Magnifying Glass symbol and select the institution’s Business Unit from the drop down selection. Click the Search button.
  • See the Report ID menu with reports listed in alpha order. Click the report entitled PPV Public Private Venture.
  • You will be directed to a page screen. Indicate the date you want to run the report. The report will compute data as of the date you indicate.
  • Select the Run Report button and then click OK.
  • See the following indicators once the process has been queued and the report is ready:
    • Run Status = Success
    • Distribution Status = Posted
  • Select Report Request and then Report Manager.
  • Click the Administration tab for access to the report(s) by PPV project for your institution.

25.7.5 Board of Regents Review of nVision Report

25.7.6 Other Notes on PPV Project Revenue and Expense (nVision Report)

(Last Modified on May 14, 2015)

  1. Revenue is classified as either project revenue or non-project revenue. Project revenue consists of actual income earned by the project. Accounting activity coded in PeopleSoft as Mandatory Transfers (account 911xxx) and Non-mandatory Transfers (account 921xxx) will map to the Non-Project Revenue line in the report. See Section 25.6.1 to determine how project revenue (actual income earned and mandatory/non-mandatory transfers) is reflected for cash flow analysis.

  2. Project expenses are defined as expenditures that have been incurred (for receipt of goods or services) by June 30, which would include Actual ledger expenditures. The intent is to report a full 12 months of project expenses for a reporting period. Project expenses should include all direct or allocated expenses of the project, even though the typical, approved proforma reflects operating expenses as a lump sum amount. Please see Sections 25.6.2 and 25.6.3 for a breakdown of reporting PPV expenses, including PPV lease payment and deposit to R & R reserve fund.
