ChartFields (formerly Account Code Assignment and Maintenance)
All financial resources and transactions administered by the University are accounted for and expended from established ChartFields in the PeopleSoft general ledger.
Establishing a New Chartfield
Office of Sponsored Program Administration establishes new ChartFields for sponsored research at the time the related grant or contract is authorized. Accounting Services approves and establishes all other ChartFields. Division fiscal officers can request a new ChartField by submitting a completed Outlook "UM New ChartField Request Form" to the appropriate Senior Accountant in Accounting Services.
NOTE: If the ChartField is for a new recharge center or a new operation that will have external sales, an additional form, available from Accounting Services, is required.
Changing an Existing Chartfield
Division fiscal officer can request changes to an existing ChartField by an e-mail to the appropriate senior accountant in Accounting Services.
A MoCode represents a set of ChartFields. MoCode is used most often in feeder systems, in certain PeopleSoft modules and in PeopleSoft Web applications to populate the ChartFields that the MoCode represents. MoCode is also used in PeopleSoft Payroll as part of the account code to which payroll expenses are charged. Authorized individuals can create and modify MoCodes.
