SFUSD ExCEL Invoicing
Expenses must supplement and not SUPPLANT expenses. Items purchased must be utilized entirely for ExCEL student programming or multiple funding sources must be utilized i.e. match funds. School-wide expenses may not be funded solely using ExCEL grant funds. With pre-approval, a portion of event, postage or other related expense may be allowable if directly related to the ExCEL program students.

It is difficult to be all inclusive in a list of what is allowed. We cannot anticipate everything so when in doubt, ASK before you spend. We want to work with you to “get it right” and to make the invoicing process as simple as possible.All ExCEL Approval forms must be submitted for review and pre-approval IN ADVANCE of any expenditures or related activities taking place.

The invoice template has an invoice for each month of FY
The template is designed so that all of the repeating information only has to be input ONCE.
Please look at the sample invoice. The areas highlighted in YELLOW only need to be input ONCE on the July invoice
The areas highlighted in GREEN need to be input each month.
The second page of the invoice is
Submit back up documentation for all expenses - be sure to refer to ExCEL allowable expenses for guidance.
The box at the top is related to the
reviews as stated in the After School Contract Agreement. If attendance is below
%, it will NOT result in invoices being held. This is simply a system for ExCEL to ensure that we review the attendance per the After School
Cover page - Mandatory
Summary page - Mandatory
The second page of the invoice is mandatory. Each invoice MUST have a unique invoice number. Invoice numbers can consist of the first four letters of the school site name – month- year (two digits) and the school code. For example, an August 2013 invoice for Roosevelt would look like this:ROOS-08-13-797No two invoices should have the same invoice number. For sites with multiple grants, the invoice number must differentiate between grants. For example:ROOS-08-13-797-ASES
Tips for Faster Invoice Processing
Please do not staple the supporting documents inside the invoices. Paper or Binder Clips are requested. As a first choice for Invoice Numbers, please use our example: 1st four letters of School Name—Month—Year—School ID #—Grant Examples: Dual Accounts: LAKE-01-13-670-21STC LAKE-01-13-670-ASES Single Accounts: ROOS-09-13-797-FL If you have a unique invoice number per invoice per month you’d like to use, please be consistent throughout the year. Do not use the same invoice number twice, as there were lots of duplicate account numbers last year. Please make sure the following information is correct on the invoice: Purchase Order (PO) number K-Reso Number SACS Codes
INSTRUCTIONS FOR BUDGET REVISIONS:1Budget Revisions can be submitted anything before the last invoice is turned in. 2Fill in the blue box: EFFECTIVE Date of Revision. Submit budget revision request at least one month PRIOR to effective date.3Please complete the second column (highlighted in blue), TOTAL REVISED BUDGET4Please provide an explanation in the box highlighted in blue as to the reasons for the budget revision request 5Once the budget revision request has been reviewed and approve, make the appropriate changes to the July Invoice template.
