UR Financials Overview
This presentation provides a general overview of the UR Financials project and timeline. It introduces the Financial Data Model (FDM), which is the replacement for the FRS chart of accounts, and worktags, which are the underlying building blocks. The appendix provides a crosswalk from FRS to Workday.

Financial Data Model, as of 05/07/13
GL COA SIG Financial Data Model 05_07_13 PDF
Review of the Financial Data Model (or FDM for short) was distributed initially on May 7, 2013. The FDM is the Workday chart of account structure that is used in accounting and financial reporting. The FRS account and subcode fields are broken down into separate Workday fields called worktags upon which flexible reporting and inquiry can be performed. Some Workday worktags are inherited or picked up based on other worktags. Worktags will identify the various dimensions of the business and form the building blocks of the new chart of accounts in Workday.
