To align with SJSU’s strategic goal to enhance faculty research, all divisions are required to track research expenditures for reporting purposes. Academic Affairs Division implemented two new fund numbers -70026 Faculty start-Up and 70031 RSCA Programs- intended to separate start-up and select RSCA expenditures from our ordinary operating budget and introduced the systematic use of faculty class code for expenditure tracking. In the last phase of this transition, departments are asked to track all other research-related expenditures in a similar manner.
Just-in-time Research Expenditures
Effective immediately, please use Program Code R07 with your primary department ID and fund number for any transactions related to research. This includes all just-in-time research expenses that are covered by a department’s CSU Operating Fund budget and/or PaCE funds. The use of faculty class codes is optional.
College and Department-Wide RSCA Programs
Colleges may deposit CSU Operating Funds into Fund 70031 for any organized college- or department-wide RSCA programs, travel and professional development grants, and retention grants offered to their faculty. As with all other RSCA grants in 70031, grant award deadlines may cross fiscal years, and award funds may be carried forward without year-end restrictions. Grant activities will be tracked using Program Code R07 and faculty class codes.
Any questions and concerns should be directed to your college Director of Resources and Operations and college resource and financial analysts.
