Fund Codes Explained



Fund codes are five character codes comprised of three elements:
a number followed by a three-letter group followed by a fourth letter 

# X X X Y

The number represents the funding source,
the three-letter group represents
the college, department, or program supported.
the fourth letter represents the material format.

Below is a decoding of the system.


# = Source of Funds

1 Normal operating funds,
AKA "materials budget"
2 Transferred to us from a department
3 Foundation Accounts
(including Wynn, the Book Fund, etc.)
4 Dean’s Discretionary Funds

Lambuth Campus:
Normal operating funds,
AKA "materials budget"

6 MOE money (Maintenance Of Effort “stimulus” funds)


XXX = Program, Department, of College Supported
(note: some derivations are from historical fund systems and
are not intuitive "abbreviations" the current department name)
