The Transfer of Funds (TF) document is used to transfer funds (cash) between accounts. The TF could be used to cover an overdraft, reimburse an account for an expense, or to fulfill a funding commitment.
There are two kinds of transfer transactions, mandatory and non-mandatory. Mandatory transfers are required to meet contractual agreements. Specific object codes are used to identify these transactions. An example of this type of transfer is moving dedicated student fees to the retirement of indebtedness fund group for principal and interest payments on bonds.
Non-mandatory transfers are allocations of unrestricted cash between fund groups, which are not required by any external agreements. These transfers are most commonly used throughout the university.
