BFAS Offers Training on University Financial Systems

In an effort to build a broad knowledge base among financial systems users across the University, four departments within Syracuse University’s Business, Finance and Administrative Services (BFAS) division are teaming up to offer a series of training sessions for University staff members. The Office of Budget and Planning, the Comptroller’s Office, the Treasurer’s Office and Internal Audit will present their first session on Wednesday, May 12.

While the initial targeted audience members are budget and finance managers in University departments, the presenting staff members view these sessions as good building blocks for new employees, administrative staff, and any other staff members who interact with the University’s various financial systems.

“Our first session in particular will include a broad overview of the University’s financial departments,” said Victoria Budnik, training specialist in the Office of Budget and Planning. “Later sessions will include deeper dives into each of those departments and the policies and processes for which they are responsible.”

Budget managers have received an invite to sign up for the upcoming session. They are encouraged to share the invitation with any other interested members of their staff.

Interested staff members with questions should contact the Office of Budget and Planning at
