New UBF System Prompts Change in Reporting of Fees

Published October 17, 2016

As part of the implementation of UBF’s new business system, in 2016-17, General University Service Fees (GUSF) and Gift Fees will be listed in SIRI and UBFirst as a monthly accrual rather than individual transactions.

Why the Change

  • Closer to the manner in which fees are reported on state funds
  • More compatible with the design of UBF’s new internal business system
  • More easily identifiable revenue transactions for reconciliation purposes, as transactions will be posted as gross amounts
  • More transparency to easily identify the total amount of GUSF and Gift Fees posted to a particular fund in a given month

Viewing Change in SIRI and UBFirst

UBF plans to post fee transactions weekly, however, at the end of the month you will only see one posting for the GUSF and Gift Fees. You will see these changes in the revenue transaction detail of your accounts.
