The BANNER Finance System is a set of fully integrated components enabling the University of Idaho to provide the highest quality financial services. The core of BANNER's Finance System, the General Ledger, is fully integrated with all other finance system areas and conforms to AICPA, FASB, GASB, and GAAP, and GAAFR principles. Purchasing and Receiving supports purchasing agents in making both on-demand and long-term buying decisions, as well as controlling both requests for and receipt of goods. Accounts Payable helps to enhance cash flow and increase investment earnings, and establishes good vendor relations by automatically calculating discounts and payment schedules and automatically generating General Ledger transactions. Accounts Receivable maintains charge and payment information for various accounts, provides for both invoice and statement generation, and includes a complete cashiering function. Management of Fixed Assets is improved with BANNER's full support of risk, insurance, custodial and capital asset monitoring.

Additional forms and information on budget and accounts can be found on the Accounts Payable and Budget Office websites.
