blog posts UAFR Weekly Tips: Financial Manager Role in Banner Jan 10, 2024 9:45 amAccounting and BudgetingFY 24Payments to the UniversityDid you know that a Financial Manager (FINMGR) is assigned to each one of your fund, organization, and program code segments within Banner? See below for more information:The person who is assigned as a FINMGR to a fund, organization, or program code is typically UAFR’s first point of contact when accounting questions arise. Therefore, the person assigned as the FINMGR within Banner should be familiar with the detailed accounting transactions posting to these fund, organization, and/or program codes. We encourage you to assign the FINMGR role to someone who is closely involved in your unit’s business functions (as opposed to assigning to a dean or department head, who may not be familiar with those details). The FINMGR assigned to a particular fund, organization, or program code can be found in Banner by going to the Tools –Personnel Information menu within FZMFUND, FZMORGN, or FZMPROG, respectively. If you need to update your assigned FINMGR, simply send an email to email@example.com requesting the change. In addition, keep in mind that UAFR performs an annual review of assigned FINMGRs, which typically starts in February and wraps up in June. You can also request changes as a part of that annual process as well. ContactFor further details, refer to the C-FOAPAL Questions section of UAFR’s Who to Ask list.
