We had a terrific response to our Dec 5 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) course schedule. Most of the courses offered that day filled to capacity. After a few cancellations due to weather, we were able to accommodate additional individuals on the wait lists. We'll provide a recap of participant evaluations shortly. In the meantime, feel free to review next quarter's CPE. Our Feb 18 courses are all new and are described on the CPE website at www.cu.edu/controller/cpe/?page_id=1504.
The OUC offered several Continuing Professional Education (CPE) courses during mid-November.

We offered 10 courses over three days in September as part of the OUC's Continuing Professional Education for Certified Public Accountants (CPE for CPAs). Participants agreed that it was one of the CPE Program's best quarters yet, giving an overall 99% rating for instructor effectiveness and course value.
During the OUC Town Hall sessions on the campuses, we showed a looping slide show of Office of University Controller facts and figures. The slide show was titled, "OUC by the Numbers" and after the town halls, we received some requests to replay some of the numbers for you on this blog. So following is an excerpt ... a select number of the Numbers: 10,170,471 - journal lines created in FY 2013 45,207 - active SpeedTypes 2,020 - PeopleSoft Finance System users 263 - learning resources available online for fiscal systems and policies

Several Office of University Controller staff spent a day in Boulder on Oct 9 as part of the fall campus town halls.
Following up on the Oct 7 OUC Town Hall in Colorado Springs, we visited the historic old hospital (Building 500) on the Anschutz Medical Campus on the very next day. A lively crowd filled Bushnell Auditorium. (Trivia question: do you know how this auditorium got its name? From Colonel George E. Bushnell, who was sent to the state in November 1917 to inspect possible sites for a tuberculosis/recuperation camp.)
Office of University Controller (OUC) staff launched the first Town Hall of 2013 on the Colorado Springs campus on Mon, Oct 7. Assistant Vice President/University Controller Bob Kuehler reviewed Fiscal Certification feedback, commended the campus for their participation in the FY 2013 CU Shared Practices (CUSP) Program, and outlined OUC highlights of the past year. OUC staff members discussed updates and plans on topics ranging from Cognos and PeopleSoft Finance to technology and Continuing Professional Education (CPE).
The Office of University Controller (OUC) will be visiting each campus during the week of Oct 7-11 for this year's OUC Town Halls. Through our annual Town Hall sessions, we can share news on OUC activities and directions...hear your thoughts and suggestions about how to better serve you...and continue to promote transparency and accountability in all that we do.
