UFARS Chp X Updates

The new UFARS grid has been loaded into Smart Finance and that means we have been running into new Chapter X errors for FY18.  Here are a few examples of the most common errors… 

  • Fin 412 for Race-to-the-Top/Title I Pre-K Incentive has ended as of 201714. 
  • Pro 351 for Technical Education has ended as of 201714.  This may need to be move to Pro 361 for Trade and Industrial Education. 
  • Obj 390 and 399 are no longer valid with Pro 420 and Fin 740.  These consulting fees should be moved to Obj 305. 
  • Obj 140 can’t be used with Pro 420 and Fin 740.  This was invalid in FY17 also but it looks like it’s popping up again for some districts in FY18.  Obj 141 or 161 should be used instead. 

Please contact us if you want a list of all your UFARS errors.  If these errors are not corrected by the time of our business conference, we will bring error reports with us.  If you have any questions about fixing the errors for your district, just give Wayne, Stacy, or Ali a call at Region 1.
The new FY18 UFARS Manual is available on MDE’s web site.  Click on this link to review and print a copy of each chapter.
