Announcing Changes in Finance/EFS - Part Two: PCards and Combo Codes

In this three-part series, we are exploring some of the changes for Finance or the Enterprise Financial System (EFS). Part One covered ChartField values, Workflow, and Approval changes. Stay tuned for Part Three in a future issue of The Upgrade.

As mentioned in Part One, for EFS this effort is an upgrade of the existing system. In general, we don’t expect or plan on massive changes to financial business processes. Nevertheless, we are taking this opportunity to make some changes and address major points. So far, after reviewing the proposed changes to EFS, stakeholder representatives and financial advisory groups have welcomed the new procedures and approaches coming with ESUP.

For more information about the planned changes see Potential for Change by Module in EFS.
