  • User Profile Conversion
    • User profile conversion is being done based on existing ARGUS business profiles
    • Special instructions are difficult to convert since they do not fit into the basic rules of the new security model
    • May need to be re-requested through ARGUS with approval
    • UNCDF and UNIFEM fall under the UNDP architecture – adjustments may be required based on individual user profiles to accommodate needs of the funds
    • UNFPA and UNOPS have their own conversion rules and security setup
  • Should not see major changes in 9.0
    • Change to CO treasury to adhere to ICF – bank reconciliation and approval of AP Pay Cycle
    • Challenges of conforming to ICF given differing office sizes – will continue to enhance
