Core Chartfields – Fund

Fund

  • Fund is one of the five core chartfields required on all transactions.

  • For every transaction, you’ll need to answer two questions:

    • What major fund group will be supporting the transaction?

    • What is the purpose of the transaction?

  • Fundchartfield is a single 5-digit code capturing both major fund group (3 digits) and purpose (2 digits).

  • The Fund is a 5-digit code. The first 3 digits represent the major fund type.
