Our Chart of Accounts

All budget, revenue, expense, and transfer transactions are recorded by Fund, Organization, Account, and Program. Funds identify a set of self-balancing accounts and include hierarchical ownership by Cost Center. Organizations identify a unit of responsibility and are also hierarchical by Cost Center. Accounts classify the type of transaction. Programs classify the function or purpose of the transaction. These elements make up what is often called a FOAP.
