Business Office - General Financial Information
General financial information for SoHE.
All funding sources at the University of Wisconsin are identified with a series of numeric codes and are often referred to according to those codes. The series of numbers associated with the funding “string” which will be needed for any expenditure, hire, or other use associated with the funding.
Funding Strings – How they’re structured:
101 - Departmental/SoHE funds
133 - Non-federal grants
135 - Graduate School Funding (New Faculty, Vilas, Fall Competition)
144 - Federal grants

WISER (replacing WISDM) is the new web-based reporting system. Data in WISER comes from the Shared Financial System (SFS), and the Human Resource System (HRS). This system contains transaction as well as demographic data on projects and grants and allows exporting of data into multiple formats for review and analysis. You may use your Net ID to log into WISER and view the status of your accounts.
In an effort to streamline administrative processes, we have collected the financial information we believe best answers the most common questions we receive. This handy reference guide is yours to bring with you on your travels or to keep in your office — wherever you most need it.
Please note that while this guide highlights the most common financial guidance requested, it does not contain all of the University’s detailed policies, which can be found on the Division of Business Services website.
As always, the Business Office is available to answer any and all of your questions; in fact, questions are encouraged. We would prefer to process transactions right the first time rather than try to clean up problems after-the-fact. The potential consequences of the DIY-method may mean incomplete reimbursement.
