BudCast Reporting module, there are grants reports that nicely package budget, expenditures, and BudCast projections. For assistance on basic navigation to and within BudCast reports please reference the training guide Executing & Navigating in Reports”.


  Folder and Report Definitions. Within the Grants report folder there are three high level folders; Active Only Projects, Active and Inactive Projects, and Projection Reconciliation Reports.

Note: To drill down to lower levels in the report tree click the  and  buttons.

1.1  Active Only Projects- Includes only Projects that are Active.


  1. Life-to Date- Contains Life-to-Date (LTD) reports with budget, expenditures, projected expenses, and final balance without any Budget Period breakout.  This allows users to see LTD totals by budget category.


  1. Basic PI Report- This is the most basic grants financial report.  It only includes direct budget and expense transactions.  These reports exclude all Cost Share, F&A, and Agency Reimbursements.
  1. Advanced PI Report- These reports have an identical structure to the Basic PI Report.  However they include Cost Share, and F&A and exclude Agency Reimbursements.
  1. Admin Report- These reports again have the same structure as the Basic and Advanced PI Reports.  However they include an extra column on the far right which includes detail on Total-to-Date (TTD) Agency Reimbursements.


  1. Life-to-Date with Budget Period Breakouts- Identical to reports in the LTD folder with one (1) exception, there is a level in all of these reports that breaks out each Project ID by budget period.


  1. KUCR- Customized reports that group projects by Post Award Team.


  1. SSC Distribution- Customized reports for the SSCs for quick report distribution.


1.2  Active and Inactive Projects- Includes all Project activity, regardless if it is Active or Inactive.


1.3  Projection Reconciliation Reports- Provides Total-to-Date columns for Manual Salary Projection and Manual OOE Projection transaction types to quickly allow users to see if projection entries are still in the system for closed months.

Select Parameters. Once a report is selected (in this case, an Active only, Life-to-Date, Admin Report) users will need to select the run time month and the data set to load. The user should choose the current month in order to see the most recently reported transactions.
