Where Did My Document Go?

Routing Dilemmas and How Real People Have Solved Them

Why isn't your document approved? What happens when your department approver isn't available, or if they've transferred to another department, or left the UA completely? And why don't your Disbursement Vouchers route to the Fiscal Officer or their delegate? 


Mary Durham from Eller College will examine these and other cases studies to help you get a better handle on your routing issues in UAccess Financials.

What's that Charge?

Do you ever have questions about what you see in financials?

What does Origin Code mean?

What does Reference Origin Code mean?

Why is there "To" and "From"? Can't we just see Debits and Credits?

What does "BRS Accounting Feed" mean?

Where can I find out the student information associated with  the BRS Accounting Feed?

Who is my "Fund Accountant and how do I find out who that is?

Why can't I click on the document number? There's no link?

My customer says they sent the funds electronically, how do I claim them? Where can I find more details?

What type of document should I use?

 IB? SB? GEC? DI and who should I contact to find the back-up for IB's, SB's and more?

What can the Financial Services Office help me with?

 Who Do I contact for PO's, DV, Travel, Pcards, International expenses?
