The Office of Budget and Financial Planning, Controller’s Office and Office of the Executive Vice President for Research and Innovation have the responsibility of approving the initial budget load and any subsequent changes to the budget. In order to assign and detail responsibility of these changes to the respective area that should make them, the Finance Responsibility Matrix was created. The Finance Responsibility Matrix outlines the functional areas responsible for overseeing the initial load of the budget into PeopleSoft Financials and any subsequent revisions or adjustments. For the initial load of the budget, please refer to the Reviews, Approves Budget column for the functional area responsible for each program code grouping. Similarly, refer to the Reviews, Approves, Enters column under the Subsequent Changes heading for the unit responsible for maintaining budgets throughout the year.
As indicated by the matrix, only the functional area specifically designated can make manual entries into the system. In the event that correcting entries should be required, only the responsible office specified by the matrix should make these as well.
