Expenditure Transfer Request (ETR)

Campus department users submit the Expenditure Transfer Request (ETR) form to process expenditure corrections, adjustments or billing. Some examples are:

    NOTE: If necessary, submit a Change Order Request form to Contracts & Procurement to correct the PO's chartfields.

  • Allocating expenses between departments (one department pays for expense and then charges other departments)
  • Billing another CSUF department for facility rental, insurance premium, etc.
  • Billing a CSUF Auxiliary Organization by using 7xxx billable program codes
  • Reclassifying a CASHNet deposit for an expense abatement using CASHNet item Code S4000 (will post to 580093 (Other Non-operating Revenues); 580093  should be reclassified to the appropriate expense account (6xxxxx)
  • Transfer funds for scholarships (check with Dawit Haile @ Ext 4244)
