NACUBO & Banner Codes

The University assigns a NACUBO function to each fund and to each account that is established for units to use. The program codes in Banner are used to assign the NACUBO function and the program code is then associated with all expenditures that are made by departments and colleges. The NACUBO function determines the primary purpose for the expenditures from that fund and account.

Every transaction in Banner must have a program code to describe the purpose of expenditures. The 6-digit program code in Banner is part of a "program hierarchy". You can see the program code used on a payment if you list the appointment lines for a person or a department.

Level 2 of the program hierarchy is called a NACUBO function code; it is a national coding system established by the National Association of College & University Business Officers.

(Prior to Banner, each account set up in UFAS was assigned a NACUBO code)
