1. NOTICE: 148100 REU Account Code Discontinued Effective July 1, 2019 (Wednesday, June 26, 2019)
The account code 148100 for Research Experiences for Undergraduate (REU) was originally established in UD PeopleSoft Financials to capture charges for UD awards funded by the NSF REU Program. However, recent analyses conducted by the Research and Finance Offices indicate use of the 148100 account code beyond that of its original purpose, necessitating downstream cleanup to reflect accurate award financials and associated facilities and administrative costs.
As a result, use of the 148100 REU account code will be discontinued at the University of Delaware as of 7/1/2019. For sponsored projects, please consult with your unit’s assigned Contract & Grants Specialist in the Research Office to determine the correct account code(s) to budget and allocate impacted charges moving forward. For most cases, including those related to non-sponsored projects, use of account codes designated for Participant Support Costs is appropriate.
The Research Office is reviewing sponsored projects on an ongoing basis to identify potential actions. If you believe a project you manage may be impacted, please contact your unit’s assigned Sponsored Research Accountant within the Research Office for further assistance.
