The General Accounting team reviews and posts revenue, expense, and salary transfers on a bi-weekly basis. Timeliness of transfer requests is important to keep balances accurate and current in WISER, and should be submitted within 30 days of the date posted in WISER and prior to fiscal year end deadlines.

Please see Expense/Revenue and Salary Transfer forms on the Forms tab.

  • Forms must be completed with approval by the WISER Manager or an individual with signature authority.
  • Explanation for transfer request: Provide as much detail as possible on the reason for the transfer request. This will help to avoid follow up questions and helps us assess our business practices to reduce transfers.
  • Description in WISER: Description should match the posted description in WISER as this helps identify the line to transfer.
New! For expense transfers, try the Cost Transfer Tool.
  • Training materials can be found here.
How long does it take to show up in WISER after I submit a transfer request?
  • General Accounting posts transfer requests on a weekly basis.
Do all transfer requests go on the same form?
  • All revenue and expenses (excluding payroll) go on the Expense/Revenue Transfer Form. There is a separate Salary Transfer form for moving payroll as we need pay period, employee ID and record number.
What should be included in the “Explanation for transfer request”?
  • Please provide the reason why the funds need to be transferred. This helps us understand the purpose for the transfer in case there may be other options, allows us to assess our business processes, and will reduce follow up questions. For example, “Purchase was made on departmental procurement card and needs to be moved to start up account.”
