Internal Service Provider (ISP) Request

An ISP is required when billing internally. The relationship between a Program Worktag and ISP Worktag will be 1:1. The ISP Worktag will be included at the transaction level (in addition to a Program Worktag), to identify transactions for reporting purposes.

Navigate to: 'Create Request > Internal Service Provider (ISP) - New.' This request is for Programs that have already been created. If requesting a new Program that needs an ISP you can do both within the request for a new program task.

Inactive/Edit Worktag Request

Before inactivating a Worktag, check that there are no in progress transactions using the Worktag (see ISU In Progress Transactions report, Find Budget Amendments, All Worker Costing Allocations), and that the Worktag has no available spend amount (see ISU Financial Summary - Legislative and Advance Commitments and ISU Financial Summary - Restricted Funds reports). Contact your ISD Specialist to move any transactions if needed.

Navigate to: 'Create Request > Inactivate/Edit Worktag'

If you have any questions, please contact us for guidance.
