Service Types and Service Categories
Within Duke University, departments must indicate the service type/service category for all compensatory and noncompensatory payments. Within Duke University Health System, the payroll system, SAP, determines the appropriate service type/service category based upon the type of earnings the payment represents.
Detailed information of G/L account definitions can be found in Duke’s General Accounting Procedures. For questions regarding which service type/service category is suitable for a specific payment, contact the department business or finance manager, the appropriate management center, or the grant manager responsible for the funding source impacted.
