Cash Transfer vs BJE:
When do you do a Cash Transfer versus a Budget Journal Entry (BJE)
- A cash journal is used to move funds from a fund 10 to 20, 20 to 20, 72 to 10, 2X to 2X, etc. (*restrictions apply, please use the link below.)
- All cash transfers are created and approved by the Accounting Office. For requests please see contact information below.
- A BJE is used when moving from a fund 10 to a fund 10, because these FOPPS are only budget driven.
- BJE's can be created by individual departments with all approvals of BJE's done by the Budget Office.
- The only time a cash journal is used for grants is moving the residuals of a fixed price to a fund 26. Please contact Sponsored Projects before doing a cash transfer on a grant.
- Strict restrictions are set on fund 34's.
