General Ledger Toolkit
What is the General Ledger?
The General Ledger module in the Integrated System is used to record revenue, approve pending journals, analyze transactions, analyze assets, liabilities, and fund balance (net assets). University resources - including cash - comes from a variety of sources. They must be used appropriately and not co-mingled, and they require unique identification and reporting.
The University seeks to strike a balance between open access to data and data protection by assigning Integrated System (IS) and Student Information System (SIS) Responsibilities to employees. The Responsibilities allow access to specific categories of data and the assignment process complies with the University of Virginia Administrative Data Access Policy.
Requests for Integrated System responsibilities are made by you or your supervisor and submitted via the Electronic Self-Help Access Request Process (ESHARP). To begin the IS access process, go to ESHARP. In most cases, additional responsibilities are automatically assigned with a responsibility.
