Budget Transfer

Budget Transfer:

A Budget Transfer allows the division to move budget within an EMCC FMS Department. The budget transfer only impacts the current fiscal year budget. Budget transfers cannot move budget between funds ( i.e. budget from Fund 1 to Fund 2), to district/sister college or to move expenses. Permanent budget transfer requests should be coordinated with the College Budget Office.

Divisions should use FMS Account Summary Inquiry (ASI) to review the current budget. If an expense needs to be moved, submit an Expense Correction.    

Process to Request Budget Transfer

  2. Determine amount to transfer including the budget need for entire fiscal year
  3. Send email to Budget Office - Maggie Castillo and Jim Mitter and cc Leda Johnson and the FMS Budget Manager with the following information:
