Please note that Corrections involving 4XXXXX and 160XXX accounts must have prior approval from the Accountant Responsible shown on FAMIS screen 8. The prior approval must come from the person in the Accountant Responsible field. Corrections involving accounts administered by Sponsored Research Services (SRS) will require SRS approval.
