Abstract : There were two objectives addressed in this study. The first objective was to attempt to identify whether funding outlay trends exist in monthly disbursements for eleven General Ledger Accounts. The second objective, which flows from the first objective, was to attempt to identify the source of monthly fluctuations in disbursements. The accomplishment of those objectives will permit FMB to better track and control the General Ledger Accounts involved. The two forecasting methods which were the best were: 'time series', and 'monthly percentage of the annual outlay'.
