The UW Finance Transformation Program (UWFT) will fundamentally change the processes and tools that the University of Washington employs to track, spend, collect, manage, and report University finances. The UW has long recognized that its aging 43-year-old COBOL based mainframe Financial Accounting System (FAS) is in need of replacement, and the associated business processes are in need of significant transformation.  Since the development of these legacy systems, the UW’s annual revenue and complexity have grown tenfold, including a more diverse legal structure, higher percentage of the enterprise dedicated to research and the clinical enterprise, and the expansion from one to three campuses (UW Bothell and Tacoma).

The University of Washington is in the process of defining the Finance ERP replacement strategy, which will include a high-level roadmap and business case for replacement of the enterprise level financial systems. A detailed roadmap, including scope, timing, program plan, and business case and budget for the first phase of the Finance ERP plan is also under development.
