Bringing Disparate Systems Together: the CSU Common Financial System

Download Presentation »

    Implementation of the CSU Common Financial System (CFS) for Fiscal Year 2011-12 represents a significant synergistic success. Redundant campus-based financial system modifications were eliminated, baseline functionality for campuses was improved, and now a single database is used to manage the financial records of the University. Development, maintenance and operation of the system is managed at a single point, including any modifications or upgrades to the Oracle PeopleSoft™ baseline code, saving the CSU millions of dollars in systems installation, upgrade and maintenance costs. The data warehouse installed with the CFS has also greatly improved the efficiency and effectiveness of financial reporting system-wide.
