Chart of Accounts

  • The Chart of Accounts (COA), is a six segment structure that is used in the P2P and new General Ledger system

  • The COA determines how your accounting information is collected, categorized and stored for reporting purposes

  • Each account is made up of 6 unique segments and all 6 segments together are known as the Accounting Flexfield

  • The six segments are Fund Group, Fund Source, Organization, Natural Account, Project and Future Use

  • The Accounting Flexfield (AFF) combination is your COA structure

  • Each financial transaction is tagged with an AFF combination and identifies information about the transaction

P2P

  • Currently this COA structure is used in the P2P application. When you create a requisition each segment of the COA has to be populated with segment values

  • Fund Group, Project and Future Use segments default to zero

  • Preparers have to populate the Fund Source, Organization and Natural Account segments


Journal entry

Journal Entry

  • The new General Ledger will have Excel templates that can be used to create a journal entry

  • The new COA structure will be used on the journal templates

  • When you create a journal entry, each segment of the COA will have to be populated with segment values

  • Fund Group, Project and Future Use segments default to zero

  • If invalid COA combinations are entered, the General Ledger application will flag the error


Reporting attributes

Reporting Attributes

  • Reporting Attributes are used in the General Ledger to capture additional descriptive information along with the COA and to report on this information

  • The Reporting Attributes will be used to group accounting transactions for financial reporting

  • Twenty Reporting Attributes have been defined by Central Accounting

  • DCGA has identified another twenty-five attributes that will be sent from SPAN to the new financial warehouse for reporting or information only purposes

  • Reporting Attributes may be used as parameters to narrow down the results on a report
