What type of funds are 3xxxxx projects?

It depends on the specific Project ID. Projects in the 3xxxxx series are subdivided into two major types of funding sources:

  • 30xxxx – 34xxxx funding source is State Appropriations – Academic Affairs

  • 35xxxx – 39xxxx funding source is Auxiliary Sales, and Sales and Services

1xxxx – Asset
2xxxx – Liability

Fund Codes indicate the source from where the resources came from and have different rules governing what type of business can be conducted in association with that fund. Has a length of 5 digits, for example :
