Finance & Accounting currently has the following focus areas for initiatives to support and advance the mission of the CFO and University of Florida:
These initiatives are currently in the discovery phase, where we are working with stakeholders to clarify the purpose, value, and expectations.
These initiatives are in the design and development phase, to finalize the proposed solutions.
These initiatives are in the process of implementation, where the plan is put into action.
These initiatives have been officially launched, published or gone live and are being monitored for success.
Pre- and Post-Tests for Fiscal Training: Design questions to evaluate the knowledge of training participants before and after a fiscal training course to help us improve. Questions are designed to ensure that we are effectively teaching the key concepts from the course, and data will be used to adjust course content and improve our classes.
Research Participant Payments: As of June 11, 2021 the Research Participant Payments (formerly Human Subject Payments) team transitioned to the Cost Analysis office in Elmore Hall to streamline the payment card distribution process in a new location (with easy parking!).
Data Critical Thinking Resources: Published a new website called “Data Quick Tips and Best Practices” containing resources aligned with the new Critical Thinking about Financial Data course, a project initiated by the Controller’s Office in partnership with UF HR Training & Organizational Development, UF IT, UF Research and GBAS. Currently monitoring and refining additional resources based on feedback.
Finance Data Reports: Published a Finance Data Reports website with descriptions and direct links to each report to provide increased visibility and usability of financial reports. Currently adding additional reports and expanding descriptions as requested.
Finance Fridays: A monthly speaker program for the CFO Division, delivered by subject matter experts, to help employees develop a thorough understanding of our dynamic operations. After successful monitoring of the program, expand to other campus departments.
Single Point of Training, Professional Development and Communications: Created the Center for Excellence to serve as a designated training and communications coordinator for the Finance & Accounting division.
