Finance is improving the process to establish CFS project IDs corresponding to Research Foundation accounts.
Effective immediately, campus departments will no longer be required to submit a Chartfield Request form to create a CFS project ID for expenses billable to newly created research foundation accounts. Instead, Finance will create project IDs automatically.
Research Foundation and Finance partnered to define an internal process, communicating information required to establish the associated project ID in CFS. Once the project ID is created, it will be available for use in FTS.
This new process only applies to project IDs related to Research Foundation accounts (beginning with RFxxxxxxxxx); all other project ID creation requests should continue through the existing process.
