Setting up a new Department or Project

The University can create its own Departments or Projects within limits set by the University System of Georgia.  New departments or projects are set up after requests are received by the Office of Financial Services and it has been determined that one is necessary. Please refer to the Budget Services web pages for Procedures Governing the Creation and Maintenance of the University Departmental Budgets.
