  • As a Journal Approver, when an absence takes you out of the office you have the ability to temporarily assign an alternate approver who can review and approve or deny your journals so they post as intended. Approval delegation is performed in the PeopleSoft My System Profile page.
  • If you need to print or save a PDF of a PeopleSoft journal, you can do so using the Print Journal process from the journal’s Lines tab.

  • All merchants who accept electronic payments are required to understand, adhere to, and provide evidence of compliance to international payment security standards. UCSF is committed to ensuring the utmost protection of payment and personal information for our customers and patients.
  • Collection efforts for department accounts receivable (Dept A/R) invoices are the responsibility of the department providing the property, good, or service. If an external customer does not pay an invoice within 30 days it is considered delinquent. Departments should contact the external customer to follow-up on delinquent invoices.
  • Department Accounts Receivable (Dept A/R, also known as ‘sundry debtor’ receivables) is the amount due to the University from an external customer for payment of a good supplied and/or service already rendered. Dept A/R excludes sponsored projects, student/employee and UCSF Health related receivables. Dept A/R is not applicable to business conducted with other campuses or with the Office of the President (UCOP); see Handling ITF and IOC for procedures related to Interlocation Transfer of Funds (ITFs) and Intercampus Orders & Charges (IOCs).

  • Review the procedures to record credit card journals in UCSF's PeopleSoft financial system following UCSF's credit card journal entry process.

  • The Fund chartfield is a 4-character alphanumeric value which identifies source of money. Fund identifies the source of financial support and demonstrates restrictions imposed by the governing board or in accordance with regulations, restrictions, or limitations imposed by sources outside the institution. It is a required field on revenue, expense, and transfer transactions.
  • The Account chartfield is a 5-character numeric value which identifies the nature or type of the transaction by classifying them into Assets, Liabilities, Equity (net position), Revenues, and Expenses. It is a required field on all transactions. The Accounts are organized into reporting levels using a PeopleSoft tree. The Accounts are designed to facilitate reporting and are generally used across the organization. The campus, foundation, and medical center will share the same list of Accounts. (See the Alternate Account section for additional information for medical center accounts). In other words, the Accounts do not have departmental ownership.
  • Department (also referred to as Dept ID) chartfield is a 6-character alphanumeric value which identifies the organizational unit involved in transaction or responsible for resource. Departments are seen as “Cost Centers” whose managers are responsible for all its associated costs and for ensuring adherence to its budgets. It is a required field on revenue, expense, and transfer transactions. A Department is defined as a distinctly identifiable department, division, or unit of an organization whose managers are responsible for all its associated costs and for ensuring adherence to its budgets
  • The Activity Period chartfield is a 2-character alphanumeric value which identifies the activity period for projects with multiple periods. Activity period chartfield allows reporting in a unit of time within an overall project. Activity period is primarily intended for sponsored projects to allow reporting on multi-year awards with competitive renewals for different project periods. Nevertheless, it can also be used for non-sponsored projects across multiple periods where interim reporting is needed. Values Examples of Activity Period values are: 01, 02, 03, 04, etc. through to 99.
  • The Project chartfield is a 7-character alphanumeric value which assists in uniquely identifying and tracking charges to a discrete set of activities, initiatives or projects. The focus of a Project is tracking an activity or a specified purpose. The Project is often associated with a person that is responsible or accountable for the activity. It is a required field on revenue, expense, and transfer transactions. Projects should not be confused with Funds. The Fund chartfield identifies the source, whereas a Project allows tracking for a particular activity or purpose (how a department uses funds). A Project usually has a specific beginning and ending date. Generally, a new Project may be established:
  • The Function chartfield is a 2-character alphanumeric value which fulfills internal and external reporting requirements to track higher education functional classifications. Function code also determines how costs are treated in the research Facilities & Administrative (F&A) or indirect cost rate calculation. For this purpose, it is particularly important that costs are accurately coded and that it is consistent with OMB Circular A-21 (federal) functional definitions. Function also facilitates internal mission-based reporting. Purpose/Use
  • Purpose The Flexfield chartfield is an optional value for departmental use designed to track information not captured by other chartfields. Before creating a Flexfield, a department should determine whether or not it is possible to track the activity using the other chartfields, or combinations of chartfields, in the new COA such as Account, Fund, Department, Project, Activity Period, or Function.
  • This table of Project Use, Project Name, and Project Descriptions indicates whether a user can add a non-shared Project.
  • Use the Combo Edit Guide to identify which chartfield combinations may or may not be used together. It is especially useful when planning or troubleshooting journals which have unusual combinations of chartfields.

When a SpeedType is entered in these systems, it is expanded to the full chartstring (except for Account). Departments are responsible for creating and maintaining SpeedTypes. Following a naming convention for SpeedTypes is highly recommended and will make searching for SpeedTypes more efficient.
