What is a CFOAPAL? 

  • A CFOAPAL is the string of digits that tie to your source of funds.
  • Keep a running list of your CFO_PA at hand!

 

C = Campus = Urbana-Champaign = 1

 

F = Fund = 6 digits tied to your unique grant, gift, or plant/facilities source

                 OR 

                6 digits indicating a State/GRF, ICR/PI allotment, or self supporting source

 

O = Organization = 3 digits indicating INHS (375) plus 3 unique digits representing your sub-organization, such as a field station

 

A = Account = 6 digits describing the type of expense or income. You DO NOT need to know this.

 

P = Program = 6 digits tied to your State/GRF, ICR/PI allotment, or self supporting source

                   OR

                    6 digits indicating a grant, gift, or plant/facilities source

 

A = Activity = 6 digits established by INHS to further distinguish your funds.

 

L = Location = 6 digits we don't use (we have plenty already, thanks!)
