UAFR - Self-supporting Funds Entering a Budget Estimate

Self-supporting Funds Entering a Budget Estimate

The following steps show how to enter a budget estimate for a self-supporting Fund using Journal Voucher Quick (FGAJVCQin Banner. There are several pages available for processing journal vouchers; FGAJVCQ is helpful because it displays FOAPAL segment names, but you can use whichever journal voucher page you prefer. You can learn more about Banner journal voucher pages in the Journal Voucher Processing training course.

When entering a budget estimate in Banner, you must use a Plus or - Minus indicator in the Debit/Credit field. If you are familiar with journal vouchers, you know that most JVs are two-sided transactions; you must enter both a credit and a debit. However, budget entries are one-sided transactions; you enter either a debit or a credit, but not both, for one JV. You must complete separate journal vouchers for revenue budgets and for expense budgets. This table shows which indicator you should use for a budget entry.

You must use one of the following rule codes in the Journal Type field:

  • 261 – for permanent budget revisions (recurring). Changes using rule code 261 update the self-supporting Fund budgets in the current fiscal year operating ledgers and also update the self-supporting Fund budget amounts that will appear in the Budget Development module for the annual budget planning cycle.
  • 260 – for temporary budget revisions (non-recurring). Changes using rule code 260 only update the self-supporting Fund budgets in the current fiscal year operating ledgers. This rule code does not update the self-supporting Fund budget amounts that will appear in the Budget Development module for the annual budget planning cycle.

NOTE: These steps are for entering budget estimates at the Chicago and Urbana-Champaign universities only. Submit budget estimates on the Budget Adjustment Request Form if you are at the Springfield university.
