A recharge is an interdepartmental charge for approved services or products. The provider of the service or product must first obtain an approved fee through the campus Budget Office. The department requesting the services or products are billed either directly by the provider or sent a recharge (an invoice) describing the service or product sold. When a provider directly bills a recharge the provider forwards the requesting department a confirmation recharge (invoice) to support the service or product. When a provider sends a bill to the requesting department the requesting department completes the general recharge form and is given instructions to forward the recharge and the general recharge form back to the provider or the Controller’s Office.
The recharge appears on the finance reports of the requesting department as an expense and as revenue to the provider.
