FPP A.042

Overview

Applicable to

State agencies and institutions of higher education

Policy

State agencies and institutions of higher education must submit for data entry budget documents with completed batch headers to their appropriation control officer (ACO) at the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (Comptroller’s office) by Sept. 15 of each year to receive budget to pay for employees’ benefit payments for the new appropriation year (AY). Agencies must move cash into the benefit appropriations if they are established with collected budgets.

Note: Beginning with AY 2011 benefit appropriations, the Benefit Voucher Data Worksheet (available for Excel 2003 or Excel 2007) must be used for submissions. The Benefit Voucher Data Worksheet is a Microsoft Excel form with built-in macros. See the Benefit Voucher – Data Worksheet Instructions Web-based tutorial for more information.

By Oct. 30 of each year, agencies must submit for data entry budget documents with completed batch headers to their ACO to return any excess budget from the previous appropriation year.

When an agency or institution requests additional benefit appropriations during the year, the ACO will request information supporting the need for the increased benefits.
