Chartfield Inquiries: Dept ID

The Dept ID (sometimes referred to as Department ID) chartfield is a six-character alphanumeric value which identifies the organizational unit involved in the transaction or responsible for the resource. A Dept ID is a distinctly identifiable unit that represents an entity or activity with a defined business objective. The Dept ID is a required field on revenue, expense, and transfer transactions.

Dept IDs are organized into tree levels in PeopleSoft to facilitate reporting and accountability.
