Budget Transfer in SSB (single line)
Budget Transfer (Single 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.
  • If you do not know your FOAPAL, you can go to the Crosswalk and search for it or search options are at the bottom for SSB search.  Your FOAPAL will not default in SSB.
