IT Finance Program

The IT Finance program leads UW Information Technology’s (UW-IT) support for the UW Finance Transformation program, the University’s redesign of finance-related policies, processes, and systems. The IT Finance program (ITF) is responsible for guiding and coordinating UW-IT’s work on UW Finance Transformation (UWFT), including:

  • Supporting UWFT’s implementation of the new Workday Financials system
  • Aligning work across UW-IT’s divisions and services
  • Helping other partners across the UW in preparing for the transition to the new Workday Financials system
  • Data management

The ITF program reports to the Vice President for UW-IT and Chief Information Officer and is guided by a Steering Group of other UW-IT senior leadership.

Scope

The scope of the ITF program includes data integrations, data reporting, remediation or retirement of existing business applications, implementation of new applications, data conversion and archiving, and enabling finance transformation with document management, service management, and identity and access management.

About UWFT

The goal of UW Financial Transformation is to modernize financial operations at the UW, which is vital to supporting the University and promoting responsible stewardship. The system will become the single source of trusted, timely and reliable financial information across the entire University, providing easier access to real-time information and better insight into resources/fund availability to support proactive decision-making.

UWFT is much more than a systems update – it is a redesign of our finance-related policies and processes, with the help of new technology, and UW-IT will play a key role in supporting the program.
