Financials System Project Update

Posted on behalf of Kris Devine, Mike Hofherr, Mark Larmore, John Hrusovsky

This update will be of most interest to our financials system user community.

As we shared with you in March, we have selected a new financials system for the entire university that will enhance the tools available to users, including real time data and mobile access. Now we are in the first stage of mapping out how the transition to Workday will take place.

The entire university —including the Wexner Medical Center, Ohio State University Physicians and the Office of Sponsored Programs — will be making the transition, so we will be engaging with representatives of every operation.

We know that this change is probably raising lots of questions – When are we going live? How will the new system work? What will stay the same? What will change?

These are all important questions and will be answered through our high-level planning phase we are calling Phase 0. This phase of the project is designed to develop the answers to these core questions before we move into the architect phase of the project.
