State of Tennessee Interunit Journals (IUJs): (State Agencies Only)

This method of payment is used for grants funded to State agencies.  This payment method reimburses the subrecipient based upon actual costs incurred by the subrecipient in carrying out the activity of the grant.  As the subrecipient incurs costs, those costs are conveyed to the funding source (OCJP) following the State of Tennessee Interunit Journal process described below.  Following the IUJ processing, deposits (reimbursement) via the recognition of revenue are made to the account of the state subrecipient.

The Department of Finance and Administration Policy Statement Number 18 establishes the policy for the submission of Interunit Journals (IUJs).  In accordance with Policy 18, “no IUJs shall be processed for $1,000.00 or less, unless it is necessary for a department’s fiscal year-end budgetary closing.  IUJs of the same nature and between the same departments for less than $1,000.00 may be accumulated and may be processed quarterly once the cumulative amount exceeds $1,000.00”.  “Exceptions to this Policy Statement should be submitted in writing to the Director of Statewide Accounting, Division of Accounts, for review and approval.”

IUJs should be submitted to Department of Finance and Administration, Office of Business and Finance, 20th Floor William R. Snodgrass Tennessee Tower, 312 Rosa L. Parks Avenue, Nashville, TN 37243.  Once received, the IUJ is then processed for payment through the Department of Finance & Administration Office of Business and Finance.

For additional information please see: Policy 18

Tennessee Department of Finance & Administration Invoice for Reimbursement (Non-profit, Local Government, and Universities Only)

The Invoice for Reimbursement is used to request monthly reimbursement for line-item expenditures incurred by the subrecipient.  Expenditures, which are allowable according to the appropriate OCJP Administrative Guide, may be disbursed upon receipt of a properly prepared and signed invoice.  Funds cannot be disbursed based on budgeted amounts.  The expense must have actually occurred before line-item reimbursement can be made.  Monthly invoices should be submitted to: OCJP Invoice, Department of Finance and Administration, Office of Business and Finance, 20th Floor William R. Snodgrass Tennessee Tower, 312 Rosa L. Parks Avenue, Nashville, TN 37243-1102 E-mail Maher.M.Wasef@tn.gov for Questions and Inquiries; E-mail OBF.Grants@tn.gov for Invoicing.

NOTE:  Subrecipient agencies MUST request reimbursement at least once per quarter based on expenditures incurred.  However, it is recommended that agencies invoice monthly, when monthly expenditures are incurred.
