Training

 
The purchase of gift cards using University funds is subject to several conditions. Do you know what these are?
There is still time – and there are still a few slots available – for individuals interested in Continuing Professional Education (CPE) at Grant Street on Wed, Jan 21.
Does your department purchase gift cards? New gift card procedures take effect Feb 1, 2015.
Want to take a bite out of (procurement) learning?
In October and November, the OUC sponsored a number of learning opportunities through our Continuing Professional Education (CPE) courses – both at the CU System Offices on Grant Street and on the campuses.
Continuing Professional Education continues at 1800 Grant Street this month.
If you’re looking for finance or procurement training, note that the online courses have been reorganized in SkillSoft. The new approach relies on campus and department folders so employees can zero in on courses relevant to their specific location.
Kudos to OUC staff members Heather Hoyer and Lisa Vallad, both of whom will achieve CPLP designation effective May 1. Developed by the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), the CPLP certification denotes a Certified Professional in Learning and Performance. The designation is achieved after considerable study, passing of a comprehensive test, and submission of a real-world work product.
Need training? Take a look at the recently reorganized folders in SkillSoft. Now, when you’re searching for our required or recommended online courses, you’ll find them under a more logical filing system.  The new navigation for online courses offered by the Office of University Controller (OUC) and the Procurement Service Center (PSC) is: Log in to your campus portal > on the CU Resources tab, select Training > select Start SkillSoft > select Catalog. Open the University of Colorado - Courses folder > select Finance (or select Procurement).
The January 1 semiannual update cycle includes a few changes to policies, procedures, and forms. Among them:
  • Alcoholic Beverages: Administrative Policy Statement, PSC Procedural Statement, and Official Function form clarify approval requirements when Fund 36 (development) monies are used
  • Mileage Rates: PSC Procedural Statement Travel, Non-Employee Reimbursement form, and Concur Travel & Expense System updated to reflect mileage rates in effect as of Jan 1 (new standard rate is 50 cents/mile)
