Capital Accounting Office

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.

Capital Projects Overview

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.
