For separate campuses For Auxiliary operations Will interfaced systems be able to accommodate multiple charts? Does there need to be a high level chart for institutional financial reporting? Laying the Groundwork:  Laying the Groundwork Organizational Hierarchies Questions to ask… Should the institution model its organizational hierarchy based on: lines of authority lines of business (disciplines, auxiliaries, etc.) system security schemas reporting requirements Laying the Groundwork:  Laying the Groundwork Security/Workflow Questions to ask… Will the established chart accounts facilitate use of the institution’s security management tool? Will the organizational hierarchy enable desired workflow requirements? How can KFS hierarchies and workflow support the institution’s internal control policies? Laying the Groundwork:  Laying the Groundwork Chart Document Routing The routing sequence of the primary chart documents occur as follows: Account – fiscal officer, org hierarchy, campus chart manager, university chart manager, special conditions routing Account Delegate - fiscal officer, org hierarchy, special conditions routing Organization - org hierarchy, campus chart manager, university chart manager Object Code - campus chart manager, university chart manager Sub Accounts/Sub Objects - fiscal officer, org hierarchy, special conditions routing Project Code - org hierarchy Chart Experiences and Challenges:  Chart Experiences and Challenges San Joaquin Delta College:  San Joaquin Delta College Objectives Purpose of a Financial System Data for Decision Making Financial Tracking Categorizations Reporting Fulfill Institutional needs for financial data Mirror Financial System Org Hierarchy to Operational Structure San Joaquin Delta College:  San Joaquin Delta College Starting with the End in Mind Financial Reporting Internal Management Reports Department Accountability Online queries External GASB / FASB requirements Federal reporting State reporting Other San Joaquin Delta College:  San Joaquin Delta College KFS Training / Implementation Changes Campus buy in Top 3 internal report wish list Hands on Training Old to New mapping What stays the same Cornell University:  Cornell University Change Management for KFS Decentralized campus Significant change (not a bad thing!)
