Accounting, Finance, and RUS/FERC Accounting Fundamentals for Utility Personnel, February 26-27, 2019

Course Overview:

Over 75 percent of a utility’s assets are in plant—quite a big chunk of money requiring a big chunk of skill to track. Every dollar charged to plant will show up in a utility bill sent to the consumer. Therefore, this course will tackle: 1) how the plant lands on the power bill, and 2) how the system finances the cost.

Other topics include:

  • How and when a work order will be set up (capital versus expense)
  • How the project will be built (line staking)
  • What charges will be assigned to the work order (components of construction cost)
  • How to measure if the charges are proper (internal controls and key ratio analysis)
  • What odd things may be encountered and suggested actions (CPRs and special equipment)

What to Bring to Class:

  • The most recent year-end financial statement
  • The dollar value of inventory used for the most recent year
  • The dollar value of beginning inventory and ending inventory for that same year
  • A calculator
  • A work order packet for a new construction work order
  • Value of payroll charged for capital and expense accounts for the most recent year
