USF Chart Field
Structure
A chart field value:
• a combination of numbers
and/or letters,
• identifies the characteristics of
an accounting transaction,
• identify the source and purpose
of a transaction and
• Identifies how and where it is
reported.
Chart Field Structure cont.
Operating Unit: This is a further breakdown within one
company to show different segments of the company. At USF, we
use the operating unit to identify campuses and large individual
segments such as USF Health. The operating units are 3 spaces
long and currently we only use letters. (Example: HSC)
Fund ID: This separates funding sources for reporting purposes.
In addition, specific funds will have specific restrictions on how
they may be used. For instance, the use of federal research
funds (fund ID 20000) must comply with federal regulations.
General revenue funding from the State of Florida (fund ID
10000) must be used in compliance with state
regulations.

Product: This is an identifier used to keep track of the
accounting at a certain level in each department. There are 6
characters in the product section of a chart field. They may be
a combination of numbers and/or letters. (Example MEDXXX)
Initiative: An initiative is similar to a product; this is a
different type of identifier that allows a department to further
break down funding sources. For example, it is primarily used
for RIA accounts, or to track internally funded awards.
(Example 00XXXXX) last 5 digits of Employee ID.
Projects: This is the only optional section of a chart field. It
is used to track sponsored projects (10 alpha numeric
characters) and construction projects (14 characters). Example
