We are pleased to announce that work has begun on the upgrade of the myUFL financial systems—which include grants management, enterprise reporting, and the UF Data Warehouse. Over the next 18 months, several teams of university employees will work to ensure that the financial systems continue to meet UF’s business demands—now and in the future. The project, approved by senior academic and administrative leadership, is scheduled for completion in March 2011.
The myUFL system provides faculty, staff, and students with around-the-clock access to online business applications, with more than 100,000 active accounts and an average of 14,000 daily visits. Last year, more than two million reports were generated for campus customers.
As is the case with all software, regular upgrades of the myUFL system are required to stay current and meet the university’s business demands. This particular upgrade is designed to ensure that our online business processes remain current and compliant for future financial process and reporting needs. The upgrade will also help us control costs.
It is our commitment to keep campus well informed about this project and its impact. Regular communication updates are planned for the coming months, and training opportunities will be available in advance of the upgrade’s implementation. An upgrade Web site (http://upgrade.my.ufl.edu/) has also been launched, and will be updated throughout the life of this project.
