Organization Hierarchy

All university transactions require the inclusion of an organization code to associate the activity to a department or unit.  Within the organization element, a hierarchy exists to allow the financial information to be aggregated and summarized at different levels within the hierarchy.  As the organization moves higher up the organization structure, the first digit of the associated code increases.  Below is a summary of the levels of the organization hierarchy.  Each of the lower level codes are directly connected to the codes in the level above.  The number behind a level represents the range that would be reflected on a report.  The hierarchy is shown from the highest level of aggregation to the lowest.  There are a few levels that have been reserved for future use and currently do not provide any additional detail information.
