Every Department and Operating unit of the School is requested to submit a budget for Specific Purpose Funds. These are the funds that are not available for general support of the Department/Unit or not under the direct control of the Department Head or Director of the Unit. They may be under the direct control of a faculty member or they may be earmarked for a specific use. These funds include ledger 1x Various Carry Forward and Research Study Funds (93xxx) and Clinical Trials (94xxx): all accounts in ledgers 2x – 5x (all grants and contracts, all endowments and gifts not available for general budget support, all plant funds and all student aid funds).
