  2. KEM Presentation Agenda • Why Endowments? • Project Summary • KEM Overview • KEM Features Note: Reference and additional materials available in the back of presentation. KEM - 2

  3. Why Endowments? Significant Institutional Resource • 2007 NACUBO Endowment Study • 785 respondents • Over $411 Billion total value • From $571,000 to $34,634,906,000 in assets “…an increase of more than $71 billion from NACUBO’s 2006 study. As a result, according to NACUBO estimates, this one-year increase in endowment assets being managed by colleges and universities will generate approximately $3.25 billion in additional revenue during the current fiscal year to pay for institutional programs and initiatives.” NACUBO, January 24, 2008 KEM - 3

  4. Why Endowments? Increased Public Awareness and Scrutiny • Excerpt from letter to 136 college and university presidents from US Senate Committee on Finance, January 25, 2008: “We would appreciate additional information about tuition costs and your institution’s endowment. University endowments receive very generous tax breaks under the Internal Revenue Code. We want to better understand how these tax benefits for higher education endowments are improving education and making undergraduate studies more affordable for low and middle income families today.” KEM - 4

  5. Why Endowments? Increased Legislation • Uniform Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act of 2006 (UPMIFA) • Updates principles established by UMIFA (1972) • requires investment “in good faith and with the care an ordinarily prudent person in a like position would exercise under similar circumstances.” • states that the institution “may appropriate for expenditure or accumulate so much of an endowment fund as the institution determines to be prudent for the uses, benefits, purposes and duration for which the endowment fund is established.” • Enacted by 20 states, pending in 12 others National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws KEM - 5

  6. Increased Regulations Proposed FASB FSP 117-a Endowments of Not-for-Profit Organizations: Net Asset Classification of Funds Subject to an Enacted Version of the Uniform Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act, and Enhanced Disclosures Guidance on the net asset classification of donor-restricted endowment funds Additional financial statement disclosures: governing board’s interpretation of the law that underlies the net asset classification of donor-restricted endowment funds description of endowment spending policies description of endowment investment policies reconciliation by financial statement net asset class that shows cumulative investment returns (“roll-forward”) composition of an organization’s endowment by financial statement net asset classification (donor vs board designated endowment funds) Why Endowments? KEM - 6

  7. Project Summary History of KEM project • Kuali Financial System (KFS) based on Indiana University’s existing FIS system • Endowment management not part of FIS so not considered part of the core scope • Interested Kuali partners reviewed existing applications • Selected IU Foundation’s Endowment and Trust Accounting System (ETA) to be the base • Determined KEM should be a stand-alone system (could be implemented without KFS) KEM - 7

  43. Kuali Endowment Module The Scope of the KEM includes • Investment tracking and basic reporting • Investment participation management and standard reporting • Budgeted payout and income projections • Access to donor instructions • Searchable data elements • Beneficiary disbursement process and tax reporting KEM - 43

  44. KEM Scope • Investment tracking and basic reporting • number of shares, book, par and market values, CUSIP number, investment category (stocks, bonds, real estate, etc.), and capital commitments. • purchases and sales of investments; income earned, collected, accrued; management and custodial fees and commissions; and other investment related data. • provide data to compare investment policy allocation targets to actual allocations and incorporate pending transactions (i.e. rebalancing). • track investment commitments for limited partnerships and contributions made against these commitments. Go Back KEM - 44

  45. KEM Scope • Investment participation management and standard reporting including unitized transactions • Investment pool data (number of units, market value per unit) for all funds that participate in an institution's investment pool(s). • Quantify units purchased and sold, and calculate the gain or loss on withdrawal. • Record investment income, realized gains, unrealized gains, and fees to the various funds, either in the specific fund or in high level accumulation accounts. • Track the net asset balance of a true endowment fund between its components of historical book value and accumulated earnings. • Allocate either a budgeted payout to the income accounts affiliated with a principal account (based on pooled units), or actual income earned on separately invested endowment funds. Go Back KEM - 45

  46. KEM Scope • Budgeted payout and income projection • Project the budgeted payout (based on pooled units and an approved spending policy) • Project the anticipated income based on declared dividends, bond holdings, etc. • Update current year income projections • Create spending policy reports by fund, KEMID, college, dept, etc. Go Back KEM - 46

  47. KEM Scope • Access to donor instructions • Capture and distribute the donor instructions for a gift or endowment fund • Link imaged document files to KEM accounts and transactions Go Back KEM - 47

  48. KEM Scope • Beneficiary disbursement process and tax reporting • Disburse payments to beneficiaries (including “split interest agreements”) • Provide data for annual tax reporting Go Back KEM - 48

  50. Baseline System of KEM • Endowment Trust Accounting (ETA) System used by Indiana University Foundation is the baseline system of KEM. • ETA will be “kuali-fied” – look-and-feel will be Kuali but core design and functionality will be based on ETA. • On the next few pages are displayed some of the KEM docs in progress and selected ETA screens yet to be re-designed.
