Organization Code Receiving Funding

The Organization Code Receiving Funding is the UW’s ten-digit code which identifies the department or unit that will receive funding. Ask your fiscal specialist or department administrator which code you should use.

Note: GCA requires the code to be at the department level or below. See the OPB Orgcode and Budget Number Guidelines for an explanation of organization levels.

Each UW Organizational Code has a name associated with it. The name originates from the Org Code Index on the Administrative mainframe computer.

Once you have selected the organization code, the associated Box number will appear. You can edit the box number if desired. If you need to change the associated box number, use the “Changes To Existing Org Code Form” available from the Office of Planning & Budgeting web page.

You can also use the +/-  buttons to expand and collapse the organization code’s hierarchy, as shown below.
