FOAPAL String Discrepancy Reports (Rogue FOAPAL Reports)

NACUBO-Fund Type Discrepancy Report

This report lists unallowable Program code (contains the NACUBO function in the hierarchy) and Fund code (contains the Fund Type) combinations. For example, a State fund should not be used with a Program code that has the NACUBO function of "Stores and Services." These balances may also indicate rogue CFOAPALS (combinations used in error).

The NACUBO-Fund Type Discrepancy Report lists only balances and not specific transactions. To find the transactions involved, open Banner form FGIBDST, choose Options, Transaction Detail to see transactions for that specific CFOAP.

If you are unsure how to correct these errors, or feel the NACUBO coding is incorrect, contact University Accounting Services at 217-333-4568.

Rogue FOAPAL Report

This report lists FOP balances which contain inconsistencies in the departments associated with the fund, organization, or program code segments of the FOP used in financial transactions. For example, normally the 3-digit department code embedded in the organization and program codes is the same if the State or ICR fund is used. Items included in this report could have resulted from "rogue," unintended transactions.

In addition, this report identifies balances that do not conform to the basic FOAPAL design by fund type. For example, generally, a "generic" program code, such as 191100, is used with gift funds.

This report can be used as a tool in identifying rogue balances and can assist departments in efficiently identifying certain types of errors. It is not designed to identify all rogue balances.

Only balances, not specific transactions, are listed in this report. To find the transactions involved, use Banner form FGIBDST. Choose Options, Transaction Detail to see transactions for that specific CFOAP.

The Rogue FOAPAL Report also includes the department names of the Funds, Organizations and Programs used in the transactions. When correcting a rogue CFOAPAL, please remember to contact the other department involved. If you are unsure how to correct a rogue CFOAPAL, contact University Accounting Services at 217-333-4568.
