It is the responsibility of Budget Officers to ensure overdrafts do not occur in General Revenue accounts for which they are responsible. Budget Officers are responsible for maintaining budgets, and when necessary, adjusting budgets to align with expected or realized expenditures in accordance with fund guidelines.
Budgets cannot be transferred between/among different fund types. (e.g. From general revenue to agency).
