General Journal Voucher Procedure

Periodically, revenue and general operating expenditures are inadvertently credited or charged to an incorrect account. This is a classification error and requires reclassification.

The General Journal Voucher form can only be used by the department to process a reclassification. The form cannot be used to transfer cash from one account to another, or to adjust budgets.
