Financial Account number
This is a PPMS internal entity that is used to record all of a user's Cleanroom costs. The default is a group financial account where transactions of all members of the group are gathered into a single invoice.
For rare exceptions, apply by email to the administrator to have an individual Financial account, or a specific Project account set up.

The financial account can be added later, but one is needed before bookings can be made.
New Group
If your group is not in the list, create a new one with your home director (supervisor) Name, Email, Home Department and Home Institution (university/company) details. Please also supply details for an administrator who can be contacted for payment reasons.
You may create a group with yourself as director if you have full financial authority for your work at the LCN Cleanroom, and supervise other users.
