CMS Finance

The CMS Finance System Release 8.4 was implemented on July 1, 2007. The system was upgraded to Release 9.0 on March 10, 2009. The CFS (Consolidated Finance System) implementation project is currently underway with a scheduled implementation date of July 2010.  Read about the FY 09-10 year-end close process and timeline details in a memo from Brian Jenkins, Associate Vice President of Finance.  

The Finance System incorporates a series of complex accounting modules which facilitates the tracking of governmental funds under the supervision of the State Controller's Office and the Chancellor's Office in accordance with GAAP and GASB principles.
