If you require training in how to process journals, or otherwise manage your cost centre(s) then please contact Linda Downes (details under the "Agresso Training" tab) or else your appropriate finance rep as listed under the "Monitoring" tab. Most journals are now processed using the GL Journal Transfer workflow via the web-access AGRESSO service. For information on how to do this please refer to the guidance notes Entering a GL journal transfer 

For high volume transactions (e.g. catering and reprographics) it is more efficient to put the information on a spreadsheet and forward to one of the Finance Assistants (details on the "Support Contacts" tab) for back office processing.
