Budget Transfer

Budget Transfer:

A Budget Transfer allows the college to move budget within a FMS Department. The budget transfer impacts the current fiscal year budget. Budget transfers cannot move budget between funds i.e. budget from Fund 1 to Fund 2. Permanent budget transfer requests should be requested through the College Budget Office. Division should review their budget information via FMS Commitment Control prior to requesting budget transfer.
