The University of California Office of the President (UCOP) uses a central accounting system to compile the annual financial reports. Each campus has its own accounting system, and provides expenditure information to UCOP in a format that is compatible with UCOP's system.
UCOP uses the information we provide to create annual financial reports that fit a standardized reporting format used by all colleges and universities. This enables other institutions as well as the public to compare financial data.
UC Davis uses Annual Financial Schedules within DaFIS DS to look at our expenses.
In order to make sure the information on these financial schedules and what we provide to UCOP is accurate, we need to use the correct UC Account numbers when initiating new accounts.
*UC Accounts sometimes do not follow the numbering schemes described here.
When new accounts are created, it is recommended that departments use the most current and accurate UC Account numbers.
See FSG presentation and CA&ES UC Account code table, above, for guidance on finding UC Account codes.
If the UC Account needed does not already exist, the department should contact General Accounting to establish a new one. General Accounting will look to see if another existing UC Account can be used instead of creating a new one. General Accounting is trying to reduce the total number of UC Accounts.
