What is the Chart of Accounts (CoA)?

At face value, it is a categorical numbering and classification system for every single financial transaction that, when designed and used correctly, allows for an almost infinite matrix of customizable information. Beyond the surface, the Chart includes various organizational hierarchies and intelligence that given even more information than is available at pure face value. This matrix is the future of UNT System financial record-keeping and reporting.

Category Tool

Please use this Category Tool spreadsheet to help you find the right category depending on what is purchased when filling out a Requisition. The spreadsheet is filter-enabled that allows you to only see the categories that apply to a particular group - all categories that could be used when ordering "Goods," for example. There are also keywords that allow for a search on a single word that can also pinpoint a category - "speaker."

Please use these tips for How to Filter Data in Excel.
