Please plan to join us when we visit your campus, Oct 7-11, for our annual OUC Town Halls. The Town Hall sessions are short, but full of information … on Continuing Professional Education opportunities, Cognos Reporting System developments, new FinPro Help Desk tools, and more. This is your chance to hear about what we’ve done lately – and to provide feedback on future directions. We promise a thoughtful exchange of ideas – and a few surprises!

We’ve recently updated select financial and procurement guidance and forms; the revised versions were posted on the OUC and PSC websites effective July 1. The changes are largely due to questions and new processing associated with the transition of approximately 150 CU Foundation development employees to the University. The focus of these employees' work is donor cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship. Many of the changes to policy, procedure, and form are minor – for example, adding references to the new advancement/development fund (Fund 36) to some of the OUC and PSC forms.
Agenda items: Campus Updates; FYE Close Procedures; FYE Infosheet for Departments; Personal Charges; Contract Delegation Letter; CU Foundation Events/Cost-Sharing; Audit; COFRS Modernization Update; Accounting Handbook (Revenue Recognition and other chapters); Protocol Reminder for UIS Issues; Scholarship Allowance (SA) report; Annual Financial Report Web Demo. Questions on discussion points from this and any other Campus Controllers’ Meeting should be directed to the appropriate campus controller.
The Gift SpeedType Setup procedures were recently revised to reflect an enhancement in the training assurance process. If you work with gift monies, you already know that responsible individuals must be identified for every gift via the assignment of fiscal roles in the Finance System. You also know that all individuals with fiscal roles on Gift (Fund 34) SpeedTypes are required to complete gift fund management training.
