UWinsite Finance team provides update after one month’s operations

The University’s new financial information system, UWinsite Finance, has been operational for a month.

“On behalf of the UWinsite Finance implementation team and the Department of Finance, I want to thank the hundreds of staff and faculty members who have attended training,” says Gillian Heisz, University controller and lead of the UWinsite Finance implementation. “Your assistance helping others use UWinsite Finance is greatly appreciated.”

With the transition to the new financial information system, the campus community is asked to note the following:

Month-End – The month-end close for February 2018 is underway. As it is the first month-end close in UWinsite Finance, the Department of Finance is anticipating that it may take longer than it will in future.

Reports – Financial reports will be issued to the campus beginning on March 9.

P-Card Charges – The period for moving February 2018 Purchasing Card (P-Card) changes in ScotiaBank CentreSuite has been extended. P-Card holders will receive an email about the deadline soon.

UWinsite Finance Support Taskforce: The taskforce continues to be available to provide assistance with questions about UWinsite Finance. It can be reached weekdays at 519-253-3000, ext. 5385. The taskforce will also be hosting regular drop-in centres during the month of March:

  • Tuesdays – Lambton Tower | 9 a.m. to 12 noon
  • Wednesdays (starting March 14) – Chrysler Hall North | 9 a.m. to 12 noon
  • Thursdays – CAW Student Centre | 1 to 4 p.m.
