Programme Board Meeting 30th April 2013
New Board member
Liz Read has joined the programme board as a senior user – non Finance. As well as attending board meetings, Liz will advise on the development of the Chart of Accounts with schools and departments and will advise on the content of training courses.
Chart of Accounts
Testing of the Chart of Accounts design has begun and a number of Finance staff are visiting the programme office on a daily basis to undertake testing.
Electronic Invoice Scanning
ITESoft set up a demo system at their factory site in Hampshire for AP to test on 30th April. The testing was 70% successful, and several issues need to be resolved before testing on site at UCL in May.
The inventory module in r11 was being used by just one department. They have been given an alternative system which went live in March and as a result the inventory module in Oracle has been switched off.
The work to complete the Training needs analysis started on the 1st of May 2013 and the training manager will be meeting with schools staff to determine their detailed requirements.
The programme is planning to purchase a new reporting tool by the end of this financial year (July 31st 2013).
Detailed project plans have been completed for three of the eight projects. Four more are progressing well. By the end of May the seven plans will be completed and will be consolidated into one plan for the programme. The detailed plans for Cutover will be done at a later date.
