  9. Budget Structure Workshops Multiple sessions held in March – Primary Contacts and Budget Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from all agencies were invited Introduced SMART budget terminology and process Reviewed required and optional budgets available to State Agencies Workshops provided details helping agencies decide which budget option works best for them in SMART

  11. Interface and Conversion Workshops Provide assistance for agencies modifying systems and interfaces Interface workshops held over past two weeks Conversion Workshops to be held in April

  12. Configuration Workshops Help agencies understand configuration options in SMART Help the Sunflower Project understand agency-specific considerations when configuring SMART Geared toward Agency Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) Additional Configuration Activities allow agencies to participate in the configuration of items not requiring a workshop Several new tasks added to the Agency Task List for Configuration Workshops and Configuration Activities

  13. Project DecisionsGeneral Ledger Business Unit • Each agency will have their own General Ledger (G/L) Business Unit • Benefits to agencies of this decision are increased usability and flexibility while maintaining control: • Agencies will be able to define their own chartfield edits • Agencies will be able to maintain their own allocations in the future if it is decided to de-centralize this function • Agencies will only see their agencies’ values in dropdowns for chartfields, e.g. Departments, Funds, Program(s), Projects, Locations and Agency Use • A&R/DOB will be able maintain control of central business processes such as changing statewide chartfield values, appropriations, approvals of interfunds, transfers, opening and closing of accounting periods

  14. Project DecisionsSecurity • Key Terms • Security Configuration involves defining roles and assigning individuals to roles • Security Administration involves adding/removing individuals to and from established roles due to personnel changes and reorgs • SMART will use a centralized security model • Reduces the impact on agencies • Maintains central control at go-live • Will consider delegating limited aspects of security to select agencies in the future • Workflow administration is closely linked to security and will also be centralized

  15. Project DecisionsSingle Sign-On (SSO) • Key Terms • PeopleSoft Portal is a personalized gateway that provides a single sign-on to all PeopleSoft applications • PeopleSoft Portal is being implemented • Will maintain the current SHARP sign-on protocol to access SMART, SHARP, and the data warehouse via the PeopleSoft Portal

  44. Agency Task List

  45. Agency Task List Updates Agency Task List Updates Posted to Sunflower Project website

  46. Updated Task List Available • An updated task list is available to download from the Sunflower Project website • Tasks added • Tasks removed (indicated by strikethrough text) • Details updated (dates, descriptions, etc.) • New column added for completion date • Future updates will be posted on the website and a notification will be sent to all Change Agents • Consistent version control process will help you keep your task list updated

  47. Task List Version ControlAbout the Updates • New tasks are given the next available task ID • Once a task ID is assigned, it never changes • When a task is removed, it is indicated by strikethrough formatting (the text is crossed out) • The removed task remains in the document • For consistency, the list is always sorted first by Start Date, then by End Date.  This causes task IDs to be out of order as dates shift and tasks are added
