As President Pollack has issued the statement asking units to complete and implement emergency response plans by March 20, we in the Division of Financial Affairs (DFA) have completed our plans and have implemented remote work for as many of our staff members as possible as of Tuesday, March 17.
Now that that all faculty and staff travelers and travel arrangers are using Concur, here are some things you'll need to do in the new year.
New and updated training courses are available, including the Accounting and Procurement certificate programs, starting this fall.
The Division of Financial Affairs hosted a "DFA Conversations" event February 28, at which they featured SAP Concur, Cornell's new travel system.
After an eighteen-month pilot project, SAP Concur, a cost-effective, leading-edge, web-based, mobile-enabled travel solution, will be implemented campus-wide over the next twelve months, starting with a group of eight units in January.
These scaled-down versions of the in-classroom trainings can provide an overview of essential information on a particular subject area before they go to a class or serve as a review after attending a class.
A new feature of Concur called Expense Assistant is designed to improve and accelerate your expense reporting experience.
Later this year, two new features will add value to the Concur mobile app and make travel reporting even easier.
Once you’ve experienced the power and convenience of its mobile app, you might not want to leave home without it.
Cornell users of Concur will soon have a simpler, streamlined experience when creating and submitting expense reports.
Financial Systems Administration and Information Delivery (FSAID) has changed its name to Financial Information Services.
Phase 1 of the Concur rollout began in June.
Training options are available during the week before the upgrade to KFS 7. These webinars will be conducted via Zoom.
Last chance to attend DFA classes for the school year (classes will resume in September 2017).
On April 23, after a scheduled upgrade completes, KFS users will experience a new look and feel to the Kuali Financial System (KFS). The upgrade to KFS 7 will include usability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.
A recent presentation about the Concur Travel project is available now on the Travel at Cornell and Concur blog.
As the Concur Travel System Project transitions from its preliminary “Phase 0” to the broader “Phase 1” (where it will be rolled out to DFA, CIT, ILR and AA&D, plus the departments of Ecology & Evolutional Biology and Neurobiology & Behavior), one of the subjects most asked about is the Corporate Card associated with the service.
If you have any questions in mind about the progress of the Concur Travel System Project or about Concur itself, there’s a new frequently asked questions (FAQ) page that may answer them.
To support the PeopleSoft upgrade, special KFS procedures will be in place for chart of accounts e-docs.
DFA classes have open seats and are open to any person interested in learning more about Cornell accounting/finance policies.
The project implementing the Concur travel system is in the first stages of training and testing with a pilot group of representatives from Alumni Affairs and Development, CIT, DFA, and ILR.
KFS, e-SHOP, Travel, Procurement Gateway and PCard Receipt Submission will be unavailable for an extended period December 2-3, 2016.
In the spring of 2017, the university will begin implementing Concur, a one-stop, web-based, leading-edge travel solution that enables users to address all travel-related tasks, from booking reservations to filing for reimbursements.
Please remember to run your final monthly financial statements after September 6, 2016.
A new feature has been added to the Account e-doc that makes it very easy to see in one place any notes and attachments ever added to the account.
Refund and Reimbursement Vendors will use Vendor Type RV. Vendor Type SP will be restricted to Special Payments authorized by the Tax Manager.
The Travel Reimbursement System will be unavailable from 6:00AM until 6:00PM, January 10, 2016.
With the campus-wide implementation of the new PCard Receipt Processing System (ImageNow), an enhancement has been made to the Procurement Gateway.
Auxiliary Voucher deadline extended to January 6, 2016; Run monthly financial statements after January 6.
