New FOAPAL numbers in effect

Author: Jane Morrow

As of July 1, the Banner Finance Chart of Accounts expanded program codes (the P in the FOAPAL number) from 2 to 5 digits. The increased number of digits will provide better alignment of resources with the University’s strategic priorities.

All transactions for FY ’14 and beyond will use the new 5 digit program codes while the 2 digit codes remain for any work associated with FY ’13.

Many program codes have simply had three zeros appended to the previous code while other program codes have changed completely. Please utilize the Lookup Tools on the Chart Enhancement Project webpage on the Office of the Controller website to review your new program codes.

If you have questions, contact the Office of the Controller,, 631-7035.
