Procedure Steps [Top]

University departments may:

  1. Invest in any of the pools by making a journal entry into the Integrated System General Ledger, debiting the appropriate object code based on the table below, using the default organization value (99999). This transaction recognizes the investment assets balance in the appropriate departmental project and creates an offset balance in the Internal Investment Program project.

    Pool Object Code Minimum Average Balance Minimum Term
    I 1215 $10,000 1 year
    II 1216 $500,000 2 years
    III 1217 $1,000,000 3 years

  2. Divest from the Internal Investment Program by making a journal entry debiting Investments/Pool using the default organization value (99999) and crediting Investment/Pool using the department's organization code. This effectively transfers the money back into the department project.
