Enterprise Financial System Project Update--March 17, 2008

Training for U-Stores Purchasing

The Enterprise Financial System project has received input from a number of faculty members and lab staff concerning the amount of training required of them to make U-Stores purchases in the new financial system. Feedback from users of the financial system is important to the project and is always taken into consideration when making decisions. Based upon this input, Training Services will develop an online tutorial condensing the Chart of Accounts and Create Requisitions courses. An online assessment will be required upon completion of the tutorial.

This tutorial will be available to individuals, such as faculty, lab staff, and administrative staff, who only purchase through U-Stores and have no other responsibilities within the financial system. Access to other parts of the financial system will be restricted. Qualifying faculty and staff should closely review the attached document.

We anticipate the time commitment for the tutorial to be between one and two hours.

Registration will occur through the Training Services Web site by May 1, and classes will be available May 15.
