Service providers are not required to complete this schedule for their OMH funded programs.

The DMH-2A (Budget) schedule of the Consolidated Budget Report (CBR) is used to provide an itemized listing of the anticipated equipment assets service providers intend to purchase during the reporting period. Only those items of equipment included on line 9 of the DMH-2 (Budget) schedule are detailed on the DMH-2A (Budget). Do not include any minor expensed equipment items budgeted in other than personal service (OTPS) as minor expensed equipment.

The following guidelines should be followed in completing this schedule:

  1. A separate DMH-2A (Budget) schedule must be prepared for the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) and/or NYS Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities.
  2. A separate OASAS and/or OMRDD DMH-2A (Budget) schedule must be prepared for each county in which the service provider operates programs and receives Aid to Localities (State Aid) funding. Aid to Localities funding may be provided directly through a contract with OASAS and/or OMRDD or indirectly through a contract with a Local Governmental Unit (LGU).
  3. The programs reported on the DMH-2A (Budget) schedule must be arrayed in the same order they appear on schedules CBR-4, DMH-2 (Budget) and DMH-3 (Budget).
  4. The actual costs of the equipment asset purchases should be indicated on this schedule, not the depreciation value.
  5. This schedule must be completed by all service providers budgeting expenses on line 9 of the DMH-2 (Budget) schedule.
  6. The equipment items budgeted on this schedule should correspond only to those expenses on line 9 of the DMH-2 (Budget) schedule. Do not include any expensed equipment with a value of less than $1,000 or a useful life of less than two years if it was budgeted as part of OTPS.
  7. All individual items of equipment costing over $2,500 each must be listed separately.
  8. All multiple or bulk purchases of like items whose total aggregate cost is equal to or greater than $2,500 must be detailed as indicated in the examples below.

    Examples: 12 desks @ $250 each, or, 3 vans @ $15,000 each.

  9. All miscellaneous individual items of equipment costing less than $2,500 each and not purchased in bulk can be aggregated into one total amount on line 23.
