UR Financials Overview

GL/COA team co-leads Kathy Strojny and Patty Stevens led two informational sessions at the Simon School of Business and the Medical Center on November 5th and 8th. The presentations provided a general overview of the UR Financials project and timeline. They also introduced the Financial Data Model (FDM), which is the replacement for the FRS chart of accounts, and worktags, which are the underlying building blocks. The sessions were well-attended and a dynamic discussion followed the presentation of materials. The slides, which include a crosswalk from FRS to Workday, are posted under Resources > UR Financials Project General Information.

FRS Subcode to Workday Worktags Crosswalk

It’s here!

The preliminary cross reference between FRS subcodes and Workday worktags is available for use.  The Excel spreadsheet allows users to look up their favorite FRS subcodes and determine the corresponding Workday Spend Category, Revenue Category, and Ledger account.  As additional subcodes are added to FRS, the UR Financials team will update the cross reference to reflect the changes.

Refer to the crosswalk spreadsheet here.
