The Department of FISCal (FI$Cal) continually makes updates and enhancements to the system based on feedback from our end users. Our goal is to improve usability while maintaining the highest level of security for the state’s data.
FI$Cal released the following enhancements in December (descriptions include ServiceNow case numbers):
Design build contracts needed to be identified at the contract and flow to the purchase order (PO).
- The Contract page was modified to add a check box for design build contracts
- PO page was modified to add a message for PO’s associated with design build contracts.
Non-standard configuration of a miscellaneous charge for tax rounding issues.
Configured a new miscellaneous charge for issues with tax rounding so that invoices will match the PO in FI$Cal.
Request for non-standard configuration of a miscellaneous charge for shipping charges.
Configured the miscellaneous charge for shipping charges.
Request to create a new PeopleSoft (PS) query – ZZ_PC_ACCOUNTING_RULES.
Created a new PS query – ZZ_PC_ACCOUNTING_RULES to allow departments to view their current project costing (PC) accounting rules configuration and to validate the configurations after changes have been made to their PC accounting rules.
Request was from the FI$CAL Power BI working group and represents the aggregate dashboard interests of 30 plus departments participating in the group. This request was one of four top priorities identified for information needs from the 2021 workgroup efforts and meetings. Currently, departments use multiple reports and queries in FI$CAL to obtain the encumbrance, expenditure, and reimbursement by project, fund, and grants information. This lengthy manual process causes excessive staff time to complete the process and also increases the likelihood of pulling the wrong information.
Created PC, customer contract, and grants management dashboard (Power BI). The dashboard includes the following page/reports: About, Overview, Contract/Grant Summary Report, Projects Summary by Program, Project Transactions Report and KK Project Detail Report.
