SWIFT Update March 12, 2020

Special Coding for COVID-19 Activity 

We created a new Statewide Cost (SW Cost) code for tracking costs related to COVID-19 in SWIFT and SEMA4. The code is: C19. The code will be used to report what the state spent on COVID-19 activities. The information may also be used to claim state or federal reimbursement if funds become available.

In SWIFT, you should use the C19 code to indicate COVID-19-related costs such as supplies, cleaning services, and travel expenses paid to a supplier. To do this, enter C19 in the SW Cost field on the accounting distribution line of purchase order and/or payment transactions.

Each agency’s finance and payroll teams must determine the process to track costs within your agency and communicate the process and expectations to employees.
