Note 20. Statement of Financing
Accrual-based measures used in the Statement of Net Cost differ from the obligation-based measures used in the Statement of Budgetary Resources. The Statement of Financing for the years ended September 30, 2003 and 2002, presents information to reconcile these different measures. In doing so, the Statement of Financing provides assurance that the financial information is consistent with similar amounts found in budget reports. The Statement of Financing reconciles obligations of budget authority to the accrual-based net cost of operations. The Net Cost of Operations as presented on the Statement of Financing is determined by netting the obligations as adjusted and non-budgetary resources and making adjustments for the total resources that do not fund net cost of operations, the total costs that do not require resources, and financing sources yet to be provided. The Net Cost of Operations that results from the reconciliation on the Statement of Financing equals the Net Cost of Operations reported on the Statement of Net Cost. Intra-departmental transactions have not been eliminated in the amounts presented.
