Uniform Financial Accounting and Reporting Standards (UFARS) coding is required of Minnesota school districts.

Region V Computer Services staff members provide guidance on the proper use of this coding to ensure expenditure, revenue and balance sheet data is accurate and appropriate. We can assist districts to report the data to the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) as required.

Our staff is able to assist your district with other finance questions, budgeting and general accounting treatments for correct activity recording. Multiple tools, such as documents and/or spreadsheets, are available to support your business office staff.
