Department Transfers

There are occasions when departments are required to transfer funds from one department to another. Some transfers are for expenses that one department incurs but are the responsibility of another department. These transfers are requests for reclassification of receipts or disbursements. Transfers of this type are indicated by a transaction code of 060 on FRS screen 023. The effect of reclassification of receipts or disbursements on account balances is to increase account balances with a credit entry and decrease account balances with a debit entry.

There are other occasions when it is necessary to transfer budget dollars from one department to another or even from one sub-code to another. These transfers are requests for budget reallocation. Transfers of this type are indicated by a transaction code of 022 on FRS screen 023. The effect of budget reallocations on budget balances is to increase budget balances with a debit entry and decrease budget balances with a credit entry. Transfer requests can be submitted to the Financial Affairs department via e-mail, memorandum, or through an online transfer request.
