Financial Reports are prepared for the State of Alaska by the Department of Administration, Division of Finance and include:
Available Balance in the Constitutional Budget Reserve Fund
Since its creation by a vote of the people in 1990, the Constitutional Budget Reserve Fund has been used to balance the budget through appropriated borrowing which pays for general fund expenditures when revenues are insufficient. This borrowing takes two forms:
- Periodic borrowing through the year to meet the cash flow needs of the State.
- Additional deficit borrowing as the books are closed to cover any remaining revenue shortage for the fiscal year. Conversely, any general fund surplus at year-end is repaid to the Constitutional Budget Reserve Fund under Article IX, section 17(d) of the Alaska Constitution.
This spreadsheet tracks the available balance in the Constitutional Budget Reserve Fund beginning July 1, 2001. It is updated throughout the year for cash flow borrowing as it occurs, and on December 15th for the new ending balance
Checkbook Online reports are updated monthly and include State of Alaska payments issued in the current fiscal year.
