CUNYfirst Non-Tax Levy Procurement Quick Reference Guide


As part of a University-wide initiative to incorporate non-tax levy (NTL) business units into CUNYfirst, The City College of New York (CCNY) is now required to process all NTL financial transactions, except for those from the College Foundations, through CUNYfirst. Purchases, reimbursements and travel authorizations from the College’s Auxiliary Enterprises Corporation (AEC/CTY02), Student Services Corporation (SSC/CTY03), and Performing Arts Center (CTY16) now occur in CUNYfirst. These NTL entities join the Bursar Special and Trusts and Gifts units (CTY55), which transitioned to CUNYfirst in fiscal year 2020.

Review Budget

It is strongly recommended that Requesters run the Budget Overview query in CUNYfirst to confirm the general availability of funds prior to creating a requisition. If sufficient funds do not exist, requisitions will fail the budget checking process and will not route to the Purchasing department. Requesters must contact their Budget Office to correct budget issues.
