Good Afternoon -
The Business Affairs Office (BAO) Financial Services Department would like to notify University of Oregon (UO) personnel of changes made to the UO Chart of Accounts effective July 1, 2017.
Historically, our operating ledger account codes have essentially remained unchanged since our conversion to Banner in the mid-1990s. As part of our transition from the Oregon University System, we are taking the opportunity to review and update select operating ledger account codes and make them more user-friendly and tailored to our campus.
In response to requests from across campus, the travel office worked in cooperation with Budget Managers and a Chart of Accounts advisory group to create more meaningful Travel Account Codes that can provide reportable data for travel spend categories (rather than just In-State, Out-of-State, and Foreign). The new travel account codes are available and must be used for all transactions starting in FY 18.
Section 02.11O: Account Codes -- Travel (351XX-397XX)
These codes apply to transportation, lodging, meals and incidental expenses, and miscellaneous travel expenses incurred by persons traveling on behalf of UO for UO business. Travel expenses are categorized into two sets of account codes: Domestic and Foreign. The travel expense category is determined based on the destination of the trip. Use the same travel account code(s) for both the destination leg and the return leg of each trip:
* Domestic Travel: Travel expenses incurred while traveling to, or within the United States including US possessions and territories.
* Foreign Travel: Travel expenses incurred while traveling to, or within foreign countries.
