Receiving Wire Transfers

I expect a wire transfer to my account, who do I contact?

The current procedure in place makes it difficult for the finance team to claim funding in a timely manner, as well as to allocate the funds to the appropriate place. This is because we have no back-up information to provide the Controller when they reach out to us. In order to remedy this, and to provide you all with better, faster service, please follow these simple steps as soon as you learn of an inbound transfer:
Please write an email to physi-finance@lists.berkeley.edu and provide the following information:
   a) Vendor information: who is sending the wire?
   b) Amount: how much are you expecting to receive?
   c) Chartstring: where should the funding be allocated to?

Software Licenses

For questions related to software licenses (i.e. Mathematica, Matlab) please send an email to physi-finance@lists.berkeley.edu.
