Journal Entries

Encumbrance/Expense Journal Entries

With the implementation of PeopleSoft GL in July 2000, management decided to distribute journal entry functionality to campus business officers for Procurement Card and Federal Express expense redistribution transactions and for Postage and Telecommunications encumbrances. Providing access to the expense redistribution journal entries prevents redundant data entry by campus administrators and Accounting Services. The encumbrance journal entry functionality offers administrators the ability to control their encumbrance dollars for Telecommunications and Postage charges and forecast future spending plans or habits.

To obtain access to campus journal entries, you must first attend the PeopleSoft Encumbrance/Expense Journal Entry training course.

Campus Service Unit (CSU) Journal Entries

A series of journal entry panels were designed in January 2000 to allow campus service units the ability to process charges for services they provide to other campus departments. This functionality replaces the M204 journal entry functionality that was widely used by campus units such as Accounting Services, GTRI Accounting, Bookstore, ICPA, Student Center, etc.

To obtain access to campus service unit journal entries, you must first attend the PeopleSoft CSU training course. Service department managers may request this training for new employees via e-mail at
