Help Desk Manual Phases
The Shared Financial System is being implemented in three phases. Stage one of Phase 1 deploys on June 1, 1999 with UW Whitewater, UW Platteville, UW Milwaukee and the 13 campuses of UW Colleges using the purchasing module. Stage two of Phase 1 deploys a month later with UW Whitewater and UW Platteville using the accounts payable and general ledger modules, and UW Milwaukee using the accounts payable module. All information on the legacy UWPC general ledger will be interfaced to the new general ledger module and available for inquiry. The interface to DOA (WiSMART) will combine information from both general ledgers.
Phase 2 will make available the accounts receivable, billing and asset management modules. UW Green Bay, UW La Crosse, UW Parkside, UW Extension, UW System Administration will join the institutions of Phase 1 in deploying various combinations of the 6 available modules. Completion of Phase 2 will occur on July 1, 2000.
Phase 3 will be completed by July 1, 2001 and will include the elimination of the legacy general ledger. UW Madison, UW River Falls, UW Superior and UW Oshkosh will join the institutions using the SFS general ledger and other modules. UW Stout, UW Stevens Point and UW Eau Claire will continue to use local general ledger systems, and will have connected new interfaces of those systems to the SFS general ledger.
