CU has embarked on a journey to upgrade its PeopleSoft Finance System … and we at the OUC want you to travel this road with us. In fact, we need you to help us build the road. Your suggestions and feedback will help make the new system and related business processes as useful, efficient, and pain-free as possible.
The PeopleSoft HCM/Finance 9.2 Upgrade Project will bring several new and exciting enhancements to both Finance and HCM.
The PeopleSoft HCM/Finance 9.2 Upgrade Project has begun. And when it goes live – in November 2015 – it will improve a number of business processes in the areas of human resources and financial management.
 We've reached a turning point: the external audit is now officially over. And this year the process was marked by a singular event: no questions from the State on our J-Rec. 
If your department is responsible for billing external entities, you know what a complicated,  manual process that can sometimes be. The OUC’s Financial & Reporting Systems team can help you evaluate your business process and enhance it with online bills and deposits through the PeopleSoft Finance System. The Billing and Accounts Receivable modules are being used by large and small organizational units across CU to speed processing, ensure accuracy, and provide monitoring of payments.
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
The OUC closed out a week of Town Hall sessions with a visit to the Denver Campus on Fri, Oct 11. We had a nice crowd in the beautiful Business School building downtown. Participants were particularly interested in learning about the OUC's work in technology/resources, Cognos m-Fin reports, and PeopleSoft Finance.  We were pleased to review the comments and suggestions on the session feedback forms ... and particularly appreciated the statement, "Thank you for your time and enthusiasm!" A great way to wrap up our Town Halls for 2013. We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
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).
