Info You Should Know

* New Marketing Object Codes

The Office of Fiscal Affairs and the Office of Marketing and Communications have developed new marketing expense object codes for use by your department when charging expenses that are funded by your budget and are associated with marketing projects. The new expense object codes are to be used effective immediately.

The link to a list of the new codes is:

The new codes start with “552” and will be pooled to your 55000 services budget. You should use these new object codes as appropriate for pcard purchases, requisitions, mail, and copy services requests, etc.

With respect to existing object codes, the 55001 object code for advertising will be inactivated.

You may continue to use the existing 55065 object code for printing of routine internal forms such as parking tickets, vacation forms, travel forms, etc., but you will need to use the new 55245 code for printing costs associated with marketing projects.

Speakers associated with lecture series events open to the public should be charged to 55230 instead of the existing honorarium code of 55045.

The 55045 code will continue to be used for non-contract payments to faculty, administrators or staff and speakers for classroom purposes.

Promotional items to be given away, such as t-shirts, key chains or similar items with the UE logo should be charged to the new code 55205 for ad specialties. These types of items should no longer be charged to supply object codes.

If you have additional questions, please call the Office of Fiscal Affairs at ext. 2183.

University of Evansville head coach Oties Epps has announced the hiring of FahKara Malone as the Purple Aces’ assistant coach.  Malone served as UE’s director of basketball operations the last two seasons.

“I am extremely excited to announce the promotion of FahKara Malone to assistant coach,” Epps said.  “She has a strong reputation in the state from her playing days and more importantly, she is a winner that has succeeded at a high level. 

“Her experiences, and the fact that she has been in our program for two years, make her the perfect fit.  In addition to this, she has a tremendous amount of energy and passion for the game and for people.  Those characteristics are priceless and will serve her well in her new role.”

Prior to joining the staff at Evansville, Malone enjoyed a successful playing career at Purdue, making three trips to the NCAA Tournament, including a pair of Elite Eight appearances.  She was a three-time Big Ten All-Defensive Team and Academic All-Big Ten selection.  As a senior, she was named a Big Ten Medal of Honor nominee, the conference’s oldest award, which is given annually to a student in the graduating class at each university that demonstrated proficiency in scholarship and athletics.

“I am very excited about what the staff is doing here at the University of Evansville,” Malone said.  “The opportunity to be a part of such a bright future is an honor.  I hope to bring an energy and perspective that will be beneficial to the program and help it continue on the path of success.”

A native of Evansville, Malone was a four-year starter at Memorial, setting the school’s steals record.  She set the same mark at Purdue, ending her career with 351 steals as a Boilermaker.
