Funds may be transferred into, out of, or among object codes of a departmental budget. The form "Request for Transfer of Funds" should be used to transfer state funds. Budget transfers must be signed and approved by the account manager, dean or director, and forwarded to Planning, Budget & Analysis. The Assistant Vice President for Planning, Budget & Analysis is the presidential designee for institutional approval of budget transfers.
Transfers of budget authority between appropriation areas (e.g., University of Nevada, Reno; School of Medicine; Agricultural Experiment Station) are not permitted. Budget authority for individual appropriation areas is established by the legislature and may not be increased or decreased by institutional transfers.
Transfers of budget authority between functions (e.g., instruction, research, public service) exceeding $100,000 must be reviewed and approved by the Chancellor's Administration Office. All transfers from the instruction function, regardless of amount, must be approved by the Chancellor and the Board of Regents and forwarded to Planning, Budget & Analysis.
