Service Contracts Setup


This line item is used for research subject reimbursement or technical research services.

To add consultant travel, freight charges, or membership dues, use the (03) Other Contractual Service line.

Clicking the (02) Service Contracts link and then the Add Service Contract button will open the setup modal.

The Setup modal displays with the Description and UW Sub-Object Code fields populated with default values.

The Cascade Entries checkbox will be checked if you chose “Cascade entries on non-salary items” on the Properties tab. If not, you can choose to use it for this specific line item.

Enter a description of the service to be provided and select the appropriate sub-object code. For guidance on sub-object codes, see Object Codes for Expenditures (For the Financial Accounting System–FAS).

Note: If you enabled Targets & Limits and established Service Contracts as an Auto-Adjusting line, you will see  additional fields on this page.

  • Period Minimum: Defines the minimum allowable sum for this budget line item.
  • Period Maximum: Defines the maximum allowable sum for this budget line item.
  • Priority: Defines the order in which funds will be allocated across line items based on your budget target, with funds going to Priority 1 items first.

On the worksheet, a TL icon, in place of the Delete Line button, identifies these line items.
