A Team Account is a CERN budget code or cost centre used for keeping track of expenditure at CERN and its corresponding external funding.
Accounting entries are made on behalf of and for the benefit of the requesting Funding Agency or Collaboration. Transactions are not detailed in the CERN annual budget funded by Member State contributions.
Team Accounts should be used exclusively for professional activities in the framework of collaboration work in a CERN experiment executed on CERN's premises.
