Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) warrant articles are created using the same method as other articles (See: Creating Warrant Articles), however they use a specific category and type:
- Category: Individual
- Type: Collective Bargaining Agreements
Once the article has been created, there are two options when entering the appropriations information (See: Editing Warrant Articles):
- Assign itemized appropriations to the standard account codes, as with other warrant articles.
- Enter the total appropriations amounts into the system-specific CBA account code "0000-0000 Collective Bargaining" (found under "General Government" or "General Administration").
If you choose the second option, and the article passes, there will be an additional step required when entering the appropriations as voted to reassign the amount from the CBA-specific account code to the appropriate appropriations accounts.
