Please share this with individuals in your area that may be responsible for tracking the financial impact to the University of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

It is important for S&T to carefully track all costs and lost revenue associated with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The COVID19 template is provided to assist with tracking.  Feel free to add columns to your file as needed to assist with your internal reporting.  Please provide your department(s) updates at the end of each month to  Additionally, if departments wish to track expenses separately by adding a class code to existing cost centers, then OT919 is the recommended class code for tracking purposes.

It will be important to articulate incremental, directly identifiable costs related to this emergency.  For example, equipment, materials and labor (overtime and contractor expense only) that are directly related.  Please keep this in mind as you capture these costs.  Although we are asking you to capture all costs, we will likely need to separate out direct costs if we get the opportunity to request relief for this emergency.  If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me at
