Instruction Memorandum No. WY-2010-028
Expires: 9/30/2011
To: All Employees
From: Deputy State Director, Support Services
Subject: Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) Code for Administrative Program Support Costs
– Formerly 0777
Program Area: Organizational – Budget
Purpose: The purpose of this Instruction Memorandum is to provide WY Statewide guidance in
tracking administrative support costs which were formerly charged to 0777 for the rest of 2010 and
for future years.
Policy/Action: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Fiscal_Year (FY) 2010, Annual Work Plan
(AWP) General Directives (pages I-23 to I-26) provides policy for tracking program support costs
that were formerly in Functional Area L07770000. It is the policy of the BLM to limit expenditures
of program support to costs that are supported by the X Program Elements (PE). This WY policy has
specific guidance for non-IT administrative support costs and different guidance for IT support costs.
The WBS code “OVHD” must be used in both areas with some modification for IT costs.
The WY Districts and Field Offices use of the OVHD WBS should be limited to non-labor fixed
costs defined by the X PEs.
The State Office will use the OVHD WBS for labor and non-labor fixed costs defined by the X PEs.
The OVHD code will be used as follows:
- Non-IT costs LXSIOVHD0000;
- IT costs – If there is a normal WBS for IT, rather than the last 4 zeros, use OVHD;
otherwise use LXSIOVHD0000.
The Functional Areas, where the OVHD codes are valid, are attached below.
Timeframe: This is effective immediately.
Budget Impact: None
Background: In the past the 0777 code, which included indirect costs related to workforce,
organizational support and land resource information systems was used to track administrative costs.
While transitioning to the new Federal Business Management System (FBMS) it was found that the
0777 allocations were not captured or carried over, causing a significant impact to budgets.
Manual/Handbook Sections Affected: None
Coordination: The information herein was obtained from the FY 2010 Annual Work Plan General
Directives with the coordination of WO-880, the NOC, the DSD Support Services, and the State
Budget Officer.
Contact: Questions should be directed to Mark Gorges, State Budget Officer.
