Cost Share

Chart of Accounts Manual


The Cost Share ChartField is required whenever a Program and Project share costs.

  • “CS” indicates that the expenditures will be reported as shared costs for a sponsored project.
  • “CS” entered in the Cost Share field acts as a trigger to require Program and Project-related fields.
  • This field cannot be used to share costs between two nonsponsored Program accounts or two sponsored Projects.
