The Chart of Accounts (CoA) Phase 2 project vision is to design a simple, efficient, and enduring chart of accounts
that aligns with the university’s organizational structure and addresses its business needs.

 

The Chart of Accounts (CoA) Phase 2 Project vision is to design a simple, efficient, and enduring chart of accounts that aligns with the university’s organizational structure and addresses its business needs. Fall 2020 kicked off planning and engaging the universitywide financial community to validate the proposed design. Following the kickoff, the Project Management Office (PMO) began to gather input from Chancellor and central administration units to ensure the proposed changes meet the university’s needs. Additionally, the PMO will validate the chart mapping, reconcile data, and pinpoint unit training needs. Throughout CoA Phase 2, there will be open lines of communication and feedback to provide project updates and include unit leadership for local/intra-unit information exchange.

 

The Chart of Accounts Phase 2 (CoA 2) project is currently in the Analysis/Design phase. The CoA 2 structure will not change. The benefits to the university include:

CoA Phase 2

  • Simple: Each segment will have a clearly defined purpose, streamlining process, reporting and usability.​​
  • Efficient: The simplicity of chart changes allow the user to spend more time analyzing and less time reconciling.​
  • Enduring: The chart structure will align with HR and financial systems now and in the foreseeable future.

What benefits will we gain?

  • Align the department segment with the HCM project to drive greater efficiency across university systems​
  • More consistent and robust financial reporting across the university
  • Enhanced transaction management and tracking capability
  • Simplified and standardized project accounting

How are we doing it?

  • Collaborate: Gather input from Chancellor and central administration units to ensure the proposed changes meet the university’s needs
  • Refine: Validate the chart mapping, reconcile data, and pinpoint unit training needs
  • Socialize: Open lines of communication and feedback to provide project updates and include unit leadership for local/intra-unit information exchange
