Sometimes departments and trust managers may wish to appropriate (transfer) funds from a trust, for example:
- where funds need to be appropriated to another Department; or
- where the fund expenditure is large or spread across a number of activities and there is a need for greater reporting functionality.
If this is the case then please email UFS_TF@admin.cam.ac.uk.
What will happen?
Finance will transfer the amounts requested to another unique Source of Funds that will start with an ‘L’ followed by three characters representing the fund itself. For example, an appropriation from trust fund KABC would be shown as the Source of Funds LABC. You can then link this Source of Funds with any of your Department's Cost Centres.
