A journal transfer is a transaction that is used to move an expenditure from one state appropriated account to another within Buffalo State. Accounts Payable utilizes this process to pay for goods or services that are provided by another campus department, such as College Relations for brochures and/or templates, or if a correction is needed to reverse a charge that was posted to an account in error.
If a journal transfer is required, it must be initiated by the department requesting that the expense be charged against their account. Please submit a memo, signed by the authorized signatory on the account, to the Accounts Payable and Travel Services Department for all expenditure transactions between state appropriated accounts. In the memo, please provide the account numbers being charged and credited, the vendor name, document number, and the amount to be transferred. If a journal transfer requires a transaction using an IFR account, please contact the IFR Recharge Accounting Office at ext. 3086 for further instructions.
If you have any questions, please contact Paula Mis at 878-4117.
