Expenditure Transfer Form Instructions
The Expenditure Transfer Form is used to process a transfer of expenditures between Project/Grants and any other fund.
General Guidelines
This Form may be completed using the online Request for Transfer of Expenditure Form in Excel or on paper. The online format is preferred as many of the required calculations are done automatically. Regardless, the Form must be submitted in hard copy format and signed as appropriate. Field by field Instructions follow below.

All fields are required fields.

Adding machine tape showing calculations must be attached to all forms.

If any items are missing, Auditing will return the transfer with a Transfer Rejection Notice. The corrected transfer should be returned to Auditing within five business days.
