Background

Change happens! Sometimes, changes are small and incremental. At other times, change is widespread and significant. The UCF Financials Next Generation (Next Gen) project will bring widespread and significant change to UCF’s Oracle PeopleSoft Financials system.

Born from the work of both Project Wahoo and the Chart of Accounts Redesign project, UCF Financials Next Gen will accomplish 3 major objectives:

  • Integrate the PeopleSoft Grants module with UCF Financials, replacing a legacy, homegrown pre-award system and enabling UCF’s Office of Research meet the Collective Impact Strategic Plan goal of doubling research awards to $250 million by 2020.
  • Implement a modern, multi-dimensional chart of accounts structure to meet university’s evolving needs for greater flexibility in budgeting, financial management, and reporting, and build a foundation for all of its mission-critical ERP applications.
  • Re-implement UCF Financials system, with pages optimized for mobile devices, workcenters for improved user productivity, and embedded forms for more efficient workflow across the application.
