Great news! The National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) has recognized our new presentation of CU’s annual financial report information with a 2014 Innovation Award.
We continue to hear from staff and faculty regarding their PeopleSoft Finance System experiences – both good (a few of those) and bad (more of these – but that’s what we’re looking for).
Looking for some summer reading? The Office of University Controller (OUC) has a recommendation for you. Starting in August, you can browse through the redesigned OUC website in the new Content Management System (CMS) developed this year for CU System offices. The new site won’t be a mystery read – we classify it as useful non-fiction. We’ll describe new features in detail when we publish.
Congratulations and thanks to Mary Lou Kartis (UCCS) and Lori Bailey (UCB). They shared their experiences with the current finance system and talked about improvements they’d like to see in the new FIN 9.2 system. Their names were drawn in the first of five weekly drawings for Starbucks gift cards.
Have you ever followed cost-sharing guidelines in the past, using the Supporting Foundation Reimbursement procedures in the University Accounting Handbook and the MOA and Invoice Template forms on the OUC Forms page? Good news: You no longer need to submit agreements, budgets, and financial statements to the Office of University Controller (OUC). Instead, you now simply need to obtain the appropriate approval before preparing to cover development-related expenses that will be incurred by non-development staff. At each campus, the Vice Chancellor for Advancement or delegate will be responsible for reviewing the activity/event and providing that approval.
