General Ledger

The General Ledger (GL) is the central repository for transactions from Harvard's financial applications (PCard, HCOM, Web Reimbursement, Accounts Payable, Payroll) and other local interfaces. Manual journals are entries you make to the General Ledger using Oracle to redistribute or reallocate money from one 33-digit chart of accounts combination to another or several 33-digit combinations. Typically, manual journals are created to:

  • Correct or adjust prior journal entries
  • Move expenses from one funding source to another
  • Account for the internal sale of goods or services
  • Transfer funds
