Single String Validation Tool

When a user attempts to use a specific code for reporting, the user can verify if the SACS code can be used in the current filing period.

For further information please refer to the California School Accounting Manual (CSAM). It describes the use of optional and locally defined codes and the requirements for “rolling up” the general ledger data to the level specified by the CDE for the purpose of transmitting data.

This tool provides an authorized user the ability to enter the 19-digit SACS Code and provides a method to have the system verify whether it is a valid SACS Code for the current fiscal year and entity.
