Payroll Accounting and FD101 

This is a reminder to routinely review payroll expenses that posted to FD101 Default Clearing Fund. FD101 is not intended to be used in costing allocations or on financial transactions. If salary expenses do post to this fund, the expectation is that they be moved via Payroll Accounting Adjustments. There have been instances where payroll has posted to FD101 and this has yet to be cleared out. This is especially critical for graduate appointments to avoid non-resident allocations posting revenue to FD101.

For ANY graduate Student employees, the use of FD101 in the Default Organization Assignment is not recommended as any issues with expired funding may result in the Graduate Fee Authorization being expensed to FD101. It is recommended that units analyze the Sources and Uses – Variance Analysis report for their unit for FD101 and cleanup any residual FD101 balances. More information on FD101 is available in the Administrative Resource Center. The Controller's Office will be reaching out to impacted units as well.
