Web pages related to enterprise IT systems have moved from the WaTech website to the OFM website:
These web pages include instructions, reference materials, links to training and other information related to systems that are used by multiple state agencies. These include accounting systems, budget and legislative systems, reporting systems and the Employee Self-Service (ESS) system for earnings statements and leave requests.
Many business processes will change when the new ERP system is implemented, and it will be more important than ever for staff to have strong knowledge of accounting principles. OFM Statewide Accounting is seeking funding to provide a comprehensive accounting training series to help agency staff prepare for the new ERP system and on-going training for new staff and growth and development.
OFM established the Federal Grants Community of Practice workgroup and has been holding bi-monthly meetings to discuss federal issues and share best practices. The workgroup’s main objectives are to create a community of resources, develop federal grant training curriculum, and identify and address ongoing grant management needs.
The workgroup currently has representatives from a variety of state agencies who manage federal grant programs of various nature and sizes. Members include grant program management staff, internal auditors and fiscal staff.
Our goal is to have all agencies that interface from AFRS using the same server with a standard set of data elements prior to the ERP implementation. This will make converting the agency interfaces much easier when the new system is configured. We are currently working on Phase 1 of this project.
