Budget Transfer in SSB (multiple line)
  • These instructions allow users to transfer non-salaried items between multiple accounts or multiple organizations. If you are moving salaried items you must use the Paper Budget Transaction Form. 
  • This process has the same programmed departmental security as Banner Finance; thus only allowing transactions to your area of responsibility.
  • In each document created, the pluses (transfers to) must equal the minuses (transfers from).
  • You can not move money to or from the Foundation. So, your chart should always be Chart 1 (University Chart).Please contact the Foundation for Foundation Budget Questions.
  • We now have an Operating Expenditure Pool, which is 711. If you are moving expenditure budget, you will use the 711 account.  If you are increasing your revenue budget you will continue to use the specific revenue account code.

To complete a budget transfer (multiple line):

1. Budget Transfers are done in Self-Service Banner (SSB).

2. Click on the Multiple Line Budget Transfer link.


3. Transaction Date will default to Today’s date.

4. Select your Journal Type.

5. In the Document Amount field, enter the total document amount.  The Document Amount is the TOTAL amount transferred on the document between the FROM account to the TO account.


6. Enter your Chart of Accounts code in the Chart field.

7. Enter the first Fund, Orgn, Account & Program from which you are transferring funds into the first FOAPAL field.
