UCF Research Foundation Financials Project Implementation
The UCF Research Foundation (UCFRF) and Finance and Accounting (F&A) are pleased to announce the successful launch of the UCFRF Financials Project, on July 6, 2015. A nimble team of professionals from both UCFRF and F&A’s Financials Support Services collaborated to complete project planning, fit-gap analysis, user acceptance testing, and initial training all within the established project timeline. Completing the implementation in-house using the Oracle PeopleSoft Financials and Supply Chain modules already licensed by the university resulted in significant cost savings to the university from software licensing and consulting fees normally associated with such a project.
