All USG institutions must ensure that transactional data is maintained in such a manner to fulfill all financial reporting requirements. In order to track the Federal Stimulus funds from a system standpoint, new Funds, Class Code, and Revenue Accounts have been created. Additional accounting policies and procedures currently are under development, in concert with the State Accounting Office.
10900 APPROPRIATIONS – FEDERAL STIMULUS
This fund will be used for all Federal Stimulus funds that are received through the State Appropriation process.
20000 SPONSORED – FEDERAL STIMULUS
Although not new, this fund will be used for all Federal Stimulus funds that are awarded as grant or project funds. The grant/project must be further identified with the Federal Stimulus funds class code, as noted below, and a unique project identifier for each CFDA number.
In Fiscal Year 2010, Energy Grants awarded by the Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority (GEFA) will be recorded in Fund 20000.
