Statewide Accounting currently offers a variety of free training to state agencies on a range of topics. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have transitioned many of our courses to eLearning. Many of our existing training classes will become obsolete after the transition to Workday. Therefore, we have only transitioned the highest priority accounting trainings at this time.
Our focus for training development for fiscal years 2021 and 2022 includes:
The State Administrative and Accounting Manual (SAAM) contains statewide policies and procedures and are the minimum requirements that state agencies must meet. The Office of Financial Management is required by the Budget and Accounting Act (RCW 43.88.160) to establish a Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)-based accounting system and procedures, as necessary, to provide for accountability of the state's assets and compliance to its laws and regulations.
The Foundation Data Model (FDM) is a multi-dimensional data structure that serves as the backbone for transaction processing and reporting done within Workday. Its structure maximizes reporting capabilities. The FDM will replace the existing chart of accounts when Phase 1A, Core Financials, goes live in June 2022.

The agency support team is a network that was created to support a two-way flow of information between the One Washington project team and the agencies we serve. The AST is comprised of representatives from each state agency including a sponsor (typically an agency director or deputy director), a lead who provides project management support, and subject matter experts who are helping to prepare their agency's people, processes, and technology for the changes ahead.
