In addition to operational support of SFS, there are also various ongoing projects that UWSA will undertake to further enhance the system, improve business processes, and/or meet regulatory requirements. The page is dedicated to keeping the users of SFS informed of goals, timelines, and progress for each of these projects.

If you have ideas for future projects that the SFS Operations team should consider, please email UWSA Problem Solvers.

Project Updates

(as of December 2020)

NOTE: all project activity is in JEOPARDY because of the covid-19 response.

P-Card

The SFS team is working now with UW-Oshkosh and UW-Madison to make sure the P-card module works for UW business processes.  The team hopes that those institutions will begin using P-card within SFS before the end of CY20.

ARBI Rollout

The SFS team is working on expanding the functionality to additional institutions. Currently, there is work being done to rollout ARBI to two new institutions.

Grants Rollout

UW-Stevens Point began using the Grants module in October 2020. The SFS team is now engaging with other campuses that are interested in using the Grants functionality.
