Budget Transfer via SSB for Finance
With the introduction of Self-Service Banner Finance, Business Managers have the option of performing one-time transfers of discretionary budgets between their organizations and/or budget pools. The Self-Service Banner Budget Transfer Guide describes how to perform your own budget transfers.
Banner Finance Summary Tool
In addition to Finance reporting via Self-Service Banner and e-Print reports, we provide a Banner Finance Summary Tool for Unit Business Managers. This tool is a Microsoft Excel pivot table that contains aggregated financial data as of the indicated date for your divisions. Banner organizational and account hierarchies have been incorporated into the file to allow you to view your financial information from a variety of perspectives. All funds and transactions are included, both unrestricted and restricted. For more information about access and training for the Summary Tool, please contact, Joe Henson , x6003.
