Following instruction from ROO, Research Accounting transfer any excess income or excess expenditure (ie. overspend) to the departmental research cost centre, with the ED source of funds, and a transaction code LZEG for excess income or AZZN/EZZN for excess expenditure.
Adjustments are not made to the Grants Module for under and overspends.
For example, if an award is under-spent the Award Status report will continue to show an under-spend after the transfer of excess income is made in the GL.
The Award number, project and Principal Investigator name are quoted in the details of the journal. Departments are advised to run a GL Account Analysis report at month end for information of balances transferred as individual notification emails are not sent by the Research Operations Office.
