The Kuali Financial System is the data of record and transactional management tool for most financial data on the Ithaca campus. Accessible by financial staff across the university, KFS provides for the entry of financial transactions through a variety of task-specific electronic documents (e-docs). KFS's capabilities include a robust chart of accounts, self-balancing design, native fund-based accounting, comprehensive reconciliation, and flexible workflow.
Data from the Kuali Financial System (KFS) is extracted each business night, transformed into report-enabling dimensional models, and loaded into the Kuali Data Warehouse (KDW). Financial Information Services maintains a number of preformated reports through Cornell’s centrally supported, web-based business intelligence system, OBIEE.
We support financial systems users through online guidance, training, one-on-one consulting, and responding to user questions. Report system problems or service outages to us (Financial Information Services), and we will work with technical staff to resolve them.
