- Negative FTE related to OSE budgeted in State accounts (for employees that will be charged to other funds during the fiscal year) must be input in CBM. Your Form1 submission will not be accepted if you fail to budget the negative FTE amounts. [State Fund 10 accounts only]

The CBM online user manual can be accessed from any CBM page by clicking on this link:
If you zero the AF Compensation Rate and/or FTE for a split employee, you will receive a warning. This feature was added so that users are reminded to send email notification to the VP area coordinators who share their split employees.
The USB Change form is available from CBM. This form contains FTE, Compensation Rate, Salary Rate, and Job Earnings Distribution accounts and percentages from CBM. Users can print this form for AF employees and submit it for authorization before sending to HR.
You have the ability to “clone” a complete CBM Employee record (demographic, salary, and OSE data) into a new CBM employee record. All data from the existing employee, except for Emplid, SSN, Name, and Position, will be copied to the “clone”. A new ‘C’ Emplid will be automatically generated from CBM.
There are additional GL classes on the Account OSE and OTPS pages to help clarify budget items for Form1.
Printing Instructions Document
There is a document with CBM printing instructions on our website under Budget Development — Manual to familiarize you with the steps to follow to print your CBM reports:

- PeopleSoft was updated so that student and employee data reside in separate databases. CBM, which is now part of the employee database (HCM), has the same look and functionality as in the past. Bookmarks and favorites should be updated to point to the new URL shown above. From Process Monitor, Report Manager and Query, choose the (HCM) item from the menu.

Expenses for these employees should be budgeted in aggregate on the employee pages using Jobcode 1136 – Adj Lect. CBM has been programmed to omit the calculation of UUP location pay when this Jobcode is selected.
- Teaching Assistant and Graduate Assistant salaries are no longer loaded as individual employee records. TA/GA expenses will be budgeted in aggregate by account as Student Assistants are budgeted. What you budget for TA/GA this year will be copied forward to next year’s models.
- Account OSE and OTPS notes are copied from last year’s model to the new models.
New accounts that are created through the Accounting Office are programmatically added to CBM every Friday and available in CBM on Monday mornings.When budgeting negative allocation, you MUST include a clarifying note in the OSE or OTPS notes field. If your note is not clear, your budget entry will be rejected!!The budgeted figures in negative and positive interchange accounts must match by object.If you budget any negative OSE in your State accounts for employees whose salary expenses you plan on charging to other funds during the year (i.e. summer session, IFR accounts, Member Items, etc.), you must decrease your State account FTE accordingly. To do this, budget an employee record in the State account with negative FTE with zero dollars. The net budgeted instructional and non-instructional FTE's in every State account should reflect the actual portions of their salaries which will be charged to them in the budgeted fiscal year. As with all negative entries, make sure to include an explanatory note.
