FN - Run the Funding Change Report
You can run the Funding Change Report by 7-character appointing Department (e.g. A538500) to view funding adds, changes, deletes; date and time the entry occurred; specific Fiscal Year; the name of the staff person who made the change or the specific batch Finance Fiscal Year End process or SQL (Structured Query Language) process that made the change automatically.
The report lists funding level changes for appointment, position or department level funding from the Funding Data Entry page in HRS. The Funding Change Report can also be downloaded to an Excel spreadsheet.

*A user with a listing similar to “UW_BAT_FI” or “U:PHIRE_SQL” signifies funding that was populated as part of the annual fiscal year end funding process. This process is completed each year in early June. Information specific to each year can be found on the Finance Team’s Fiscal Year End web page: https://uwservice.wisconsin.edu/administration/finance/.

d. Employee ID: The 8-digit Employee ID for whom the appointment level funding was changed, as listed on the Funding Data Entry page in HRS.

i. Fund Eff Seq (Funding Effective Sequence): The funding effective sequence number entered as a result of the Add, Change or Delete Action, as listed on the Funding Data Entry page in HRS.
Note: The effective sequence tracks the sequence of changes, when multiple funding records have the same funding effective date; the highest number takes precedence.

If the *Status field is changed to Inactive, HRS will ignore all funding rows entered.

l. Funding Combination Code: Changes made to the salary expense funding chartfields (also known as "funding string"), from the Funding Data Entry page, Funding Distribution section in HRS.
For example, the funding combination code 133-538500-4-MSN-PRJ51UR is made up of the following 5 segments:
