Non-Salary Expense Reallocations

Under some limited circumstances, a Principal Investigator may need to move a non-salary expense, which has already been posted, into or out of a grant account.

To Request an Expense Reallocation through a Budget Transfer

  1. View BlueSky grant report where the expense is currently shown. This is in the Journal Detail report tab.
  2. Identify the expense(s) that are to be reallocated.
  3. Identify the chartfield of the account into which the expense is to move. 
  4. Submit the request using the Budget Transfer Request form​.

Please Note

  • Expense reallocations can only be processed within the fiscal year that the original expense was posted.
  • Moving a non-salary expense into a grant account is a type of “cost transfer,” defined as an after-the-fact reallocation of costs to a sponsored project.

Before requesting non-salary expense reallocations, PIs should review DePaul’s Guidelines  for Cost Transfers to Sponsored Projects .
