What is it?
Fund-Orgn Security is a security protocol within Banner Finance that requires a user to have a minimum level of access to a Fund and an organization (orgn) code in order to query or post a transaction.
Why is it important?
All electronic financial systems at Carleton are governed by fund-orgn security. This means that to view or create a transaction against any FOAPAL, a user must have the appropriate level of authority to successfully pass the security checks. There are currently three levels of access: query, posting and financial approval.
