SpeedType Requests

Request or Revise a SpeedType

A Speedtype is an index number that identifies an activity in the general ledger.  It refers to a unique combination of fund, org, program, project and subclass, which are collectively known as chartfields ("What is a Chartfield?").  Consistent with principles of fund accounting, wherein each activity is tracked separately to demonstrate compliance with various restrictions and purposes, each speedtype is a separate set of self-balancing accounting records having its own balance sheet and income statement.  These speedtypes are classified into funds with similar characteristics.  The first digit in a speed-type designates the campus (UCD is 6), the second and third digits indicate the fund, and digits four through eight are a sequential number.

For any speed-type questions, contact 303-724-9615.
