Webinar 28: How Financial Delegation Works 

What is Financial Delegation - who can apply to be a delegate, who can sponsor a delegate, how does it work?  As a Finance Department staff member it's important to know how financial delegation works so that you can talk to your customers about it in a knowledgable way.  Chances are the subject will come up if there are new staff who want to be delegates, or if someone who is applying for delegation has a problem.

Did you know UNSW has a data dictionary?  It's called the Data Cookbook.  We've started adding Finance Definitions to the cookbook as it serves us well to have clear definitions when so many terms are open to interpretation.  In particular we're adding reporting and data item definitions.  What is an Account?  What is the General Ledger?  What is Revenue?  Let us show you the Finance related definitions in the Data Cookbook.

Each month Portfolio Managers receive a link back to the Project Financials suite of reports where we invite them to view the financials for their portfolio of projects.  Of course they can access their reports anytime they want, and more and more they are doing so.  There are two ways to view the reports, one for our customers which is a simplified version of Calumo, the second way is by logging into Calumo and accessing the reports from the APPS menu.  This provides additional views and reports (primarily for support staff) in order to do troubleshooting.
