Basic Accounting Concepts

The NAF accounting period is a calendar month.


The Accrual Method of Accounting

is used to account for NAFs. Simply stated, this means that revenue is recorded when it is earned, which may not be the month in which the money is actually collected


Assets are

the resources that a business owns and plans to use for the future benefit of the operation. Assets are “what we own” and can be current or non-current.


Liabilities are

dollar-specific obligations toward repayment of loans, debts, credit or other obligations. Liabilities are “what we owe” and can be current and non-current.


Fund Equity is

the accumulated dollar measure of the owner’s investment in the company. This investment can be in the form of cash, other assets such as marketable securities or equipment, or the reinvestment of earnings. Fund Equity is thought of as our “net worth.”


Operating Statement

The operating statement (aka I&E Statement) is a snapshot in time of the financial instrument that accounts for your entire base-level MWRF, the NAFI.


The operating statement provides information for five time frames:

current period this year, current period last year, this year to date, current quarter this year, and last year to date.


Golden Eagle

Standards provide an invaluable tool for measuring the level of compliance and ultimately the level of success within your organization. They were developed to ensure our customers receive a uniform level of service


Golden Eagle: Squadron Commanders/Directors

must ensure that comprehensive plans are developed to attain the Golden Eagle Standards whether the program is in-house or BY CONTRACT


APFs are funds generated through

federal taxpayer dollars that Congress controls


NAFs are

NOT appropriated by Congress


Category A

activities generate little revenue and are funded with 100% APF


Category B

are funded with 50% or more APFs ; Note: 50% APF is NOT a cap on government support: it is the lowest amount that must be provided by the government.


NAF Requirements Budget

NRB is a long term (5-year) capital purchase plan for big ticket items. Managers identify their needs, indicating the cost and the quarter in which they want to purchase items.


Cash Flow Budget

After the I&E and the NRB budgets are complete, the resource manager produces the cash flow budget. The predictions from the I&E budget on revenue amounts are laid in and the planned NRB purchases are overlaid to indicate the overall impact to the NAFI as far as cash flow is concerned. Basically, it is a way of making sure you can afford and have sufficient cash flow to cover your planned operations.


NAFIs (NAF Instrumentality) are

authorized by law to contract with the federal government. This contract between the government and the NAFI is known as a NAF MOA/MOU. NAF MOAs/MOUs are only suitable for functions that are authorized APFs, which makes sense because the government pays for the services using APFs


Base NAF Council.

The installation commander is the final approval authority and may or may not actually sit on the council. There is a single NAF council for one or more NAFIs at base level. The installation commander must appoint (in writing) members to the NAF Council
