What Will We Cover Today • Collaboration Across Work Streams • Major Changes • Finance • Student • HRMS • Points of Intersection
About the Finance Upgrade • EFS portion of ESUP is primarily a “technical upgrade.” • Changes focus on highest priority “pain points” and opportunities resulting from new functionality in 9.2 • EFS training for upgrade will be limited to new training on the things that are changing • Communications about specific changes will be targeted toward users with access to current functionality • RRC Managers and Cluster Directors are a key audience and kept abreast of what is happening
What’s Changing in Finance PCard Reconciliation PeopleSoft’s My Wallet functionality will be used, rather than our current custom pages. • The business process and types of purchases one can make with the card remain the same: people still make and justify purchases, account for the activity, and route it for review • Some colleges or units may choose to modify their related business processes along with this system change Work Centers Chart of Accounts Request Budget Journals Adjustments Budget Checking Workflow & Approval Portal Reporting
