Financial Metrics/Dashboards

Executive Order 2014-04 directed the Bureau to make available certain financial information for the Council of Economic Advisors and any interested party to view. The metrics and dashboards linked below provide updated snapshots of budget and actual expenditures compared to projected expenditures, the state's general fund receipts and comparison with the most recent forecasts, and the balances of the cash flow account and trust funds.

General Fund Receipts

Updated: Jan 2017
Through 6 months, total actual ongoing receipts were lower than the original adopted estimate by $23.8 million.
 
  • The general fund receipt dashboards show the most recent month-end and year-to-date receipts in all major categories for the state general fund.
  • The dashboards compare actual receipts to the prior year for the most recently completed month and on a year-to-date basis.
  • Actual receipts are also compared to the most recent Legislative adopted or Governor recommended forecast, as well as the original adopted forecast to gauge how well actual collections are performing compared to budgeted levels.

Expenditures and Workforce

Updated: Jan 2017
For FY2017, we've added detail on the top 5 largest agencies to the Expenditure Dashboards. We've also added a comparison to the prior year on FTE utilization and employee counts.
 
  • The general fund expenditure dashboard shows a comparison of projected expenditures vs. the actual expenditures as of the end of the prior month.
  • The workforce utilization dashboards shows the Full Time Equivalent (FTE) utilization for the previous month and budgeted utilization compared to actual utilization, and the number of employees being paid each pay period. These numbers are for the state's central payroll system and do not include the University System or Authorities.

Economic Dashboards

Updated: Jan 2017
 
 

The economic dashboards show the health of the South Dakota economy from a macroeconomic viewpoint using data on employment figures and government assistance programs.

  • The economic dashboards include statistics on unemployment claims, unemployment rates, employment levels and various other economic indicators. Many of the economic dashboards compare South Dakota to the national average to gauge the relative health of South Dakota’s economy to the United States.
  • Economic dashboards also include statistics on Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This monthly data shows the change in utilization of these government assistance programs.

Cash Balances

Updated: Dec 2016
Following the seasonal trend, the state's average daily balance in the general fund increased in November to represent 10.6 days of operating cash-on-hand, up from 8.6 one month ago and 7.1 the month before that.
 
  • The cash balance dashboards show the month-ending cash balance for the state general fund, budget reserve, general revenue replacement fund, and the total balance in the cash flow account.
  • For the general fund, an average monthly cash balance dashboard is included which shows a more representative picture in the cases where large payments or receipts on the last day of a month might have a significant effect on the month-end balance.
  • The dashboards for the trust funds and SDRS pension plan show the fair market value.
  • The fair market values change based on investment returns.
  • The state’s reserve funds are considered the sum of the budget reserve fund and the general revenue replacement fund and typically remain constant throughout the fiscal year.
  • The cash flow account is comprised of more than five hundred different funds and fluctuates month-to-month and day-to-day based on the individual activity taking place in each of these funds. Major or notable funds represented in the cash flow account are listed separately.
