IRIS System Maintenance and Fall 2008 Entry

The Instructional Resources Information System (IRIS) will be undergoing system maintenance to accommodate the new financial system chart of accounts. The original fall 2008 entry deadline (October 20th) will be moved to a date later in fall semester. A more specific date will be communicated through CLA Now once we have a better sense of when the modifications will be complete.

At this time, data and reports for terms prior to fall 2008 are still available. If you have any questions please contact Pandora Aaron (, 4-9370).

CLA Financial/Human Resources Meeting - October

The monthly CLA Financial/Human Resources will be held Thursday, October 30, at 9:00 a.m. in the Minnesota Population Center Seminar Room (50 Willey Hall - West Bank).

EFS Town Hall Meeting

CLA Fiscal Administration and CLA Human Resources is hosting a series of EFS Town Hall meetings open to staff in CLA academic departments, centers and units as well as financial team staff to discuss the pros and cons of our current model, share best practices, and to develop together efficient business process between units and the financial service teams. Please invite people from your departments who would benefit from this conversation.

The first meeting will be Thursday, October 9 from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. in the Minnesota Population Center Seminar Room (50 Willey Hall - West Bank).

Single Payment Vendor Clarification

At a recent meeting with administrators the question was raised if the college could use our single payment vendor number for any one-time payments under $600. This question arose because the check request form seemed to imply that we could. When the college investigated this question, we were told no -that the single payment vendor only applied to certain types of one-time payments. The form should have more clearly stated that it applied to:

  1. Subject Payment less than $600
  2. Refund (any amount)
  3. Other (contact Disbursement Services for approval)

On a positive note, they will allow the single payment vendor option for reimbursing moving expenses (any amount) for employees with a future hire date. They are considering other exceptions as well and will communicate those decisions once they have been made.
