Our Finance Forms page (www.cu.edu/controller/forms) has a new member: the CAMSA, or Capital Asset Management-System Administration, form. The new form is designed to improve the process of tracking and recording capital assets in the PeopleSoft Finance System, Asset Management module. System Administration staff should complete the form when a capital asset is purchased and submit it to the OUC according to form instructions.
This month our Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Program continued to bring no-cost professional development and CPE credits for CPAs, auditors, and other individuals. On Feb 5, we had strong attendance in 4 new courses: Personal Tax Update; Revenue Recognition; Gift Fund Management; and Effective Presentations.
We just heard from our former intern, Kirill Buzinov – a student at the CU Denver School of Business and currently interning in the Office of the University Treasurer. Kirill shared his recent 9News interview on UCD students’ simulated trading in gold, crude oil, and corn. The team is hoping to compete in international championships next month. We wish the best of luck to him and his team. For more, see: www.9news.com/news/local/article/316376/346/A-championship-for-student-traders  
Bring your ideas and innovations to the CUSP (CU Shared Practices) Program, where cash awards await creative thinkers. If you’ve developed a new work process or tool (or suggested an improvement to an existing process or tool), we encourage you to share it. Your colleagues may find that your idea works beautifully in their own departments … and you could be eligible to win one of five annual cash awards ($1,000 and up). CUSP is accepting idea submissions for FY 2013 through April 30.
