The Capital Acccounting function, located within the Finance Office, has responsibility for
- The accounting and financial reporting of Capital Projects within UCC
- The preparation and submission on a timely basis of capital claims to the relevant funding bodies
- The maintenance of the UCC Central Fixed Asset Register.
Once a Capital Project is approved a new project code is assigned and set up on Agresso.
Capital Projects fall into two types of projects:
1. Projects that are managed by the Building and Estates office
These are typically large Buildings Projects
Examples would be the Western Gateway Building and the Maritime and Energy Research Building
These projects start with CA**** on Agresso
2. Miscellaneous Equipment Projects
These generally fall under HEA PRTLI and other funding programmes
These projects start with CM**** on Agresso
All capital projects are linked with a Capital Project Leader, Cost Centre and Authorised Signatory where appropriate.
Please contact Capital Accountant Eithne Beasley to set up a Capital Project Code.
