Financial System (DaFIS / Kuali)

Navigating the campus financial system is important in allocating and managing resources. The reporting capabilities are needed to review rates, provide fiscal oversight and counsel operating units and senior staff.

The campus is in the process of transitioning from the old financial system, DaFIS, to the new Kuali Financial system (KFS).  As of December 2013, most transactions are completed in Kuali, however DaFIS online decision support is still used.

Effort Reporting / Cost Sharing / Other Extramural Reporting Requirements

Administrative units are becoming more aggressive in applying for and receiving funding from external agencies. Extramural funding has many reporting requirements that must be addressed.

Relevant resources for extramural fund management:

  • Costing Policy and Analysis is responsible for campus policies that ensure compliance with federal policies. Costing and Policy Analysis overlaps with the rate review process for those rates that are charged to extramural funds. 

Other Resources

  • Understanding  "base budget" vs. "current" budget.
