Budget Accounting Structure

Accounting Structure - FOAP - Every budget has a Fund, Organization and Program code that is specific to their division, department and program.
FOAP Structure

The budget administration policy provides incentives to use financial resources wisely, to give responsibility for budget management to the managers, and to increase flexibility to address changing needs. Our Budgets are planned in Biennial cycles i.e. July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2023 = BI 21-23. Our Fiscal Year begins July 1st and ends June 30th.

Roll-ups are budgets at the highest level of authority.

*These are just a few examples. Review the Banner FAQ Data page for the entire list of codes used by PCC.

*FUND Code  




General Funds 1000

Grants begin with 4####

Student Activity Funds 3300

Organization codes start with a
Letter followed by 5 numbers
that indicate budgets within a
division, department or program.
