Drill Down/Forecasting Report
The drill down and forecasting report is an interactive report that allows users to "drill" into the invoice and personnel level for all GL expenses associated with a specific org. In addition, users can "forecast" future month activity to predict how their department will finish financially for the year.

For situations that require moving expenses from one account to another, departments must submit a completed JE form to HFS with the appropriate fiscal authority and supporting documentation.Financial Close Schedule
The HFS capital budgeting and reporting team is responsible for managing the annual budget process, reporting monthly capital expenses and tracking project ROI performance after the investment is made.
Once a year the Hospital undergoes capital budgeting. Departments are responsible for issuing requests via department Directors and Administrators for final approval before submitting business plans to HFS.
Once a capital project is approved, the Hospital will issue a notification to the department that funds have been allocated for their acquisition. There are four types of capital funds that the Hospital allocates on an annual basis.
Capital equipment or projects greater than $200k. These projects are reviewed and approved once a year at the capital council.
Replacing old equipment is an important part of maintaining OHSU's commitment to providing safe and quality patient care. To address these needs, clinical technology services, in connection with hospital departments will identify appropriate replacement needs for the coming fiscal year.
Each Hospital Administrator is granted a discretionary capital budget for generic capital purchase throughout the year.
These funds are allocated and approved by individual Administrators.
Contingency dollars can be used for significant capital purchases that are highly needed or are for emergencies. Contingency requests are approved through a voting process within the Hospital Administrative team.
