REPORTING

New Dashboards are in production:

The Business Officer Performance Management Dashboard provides a collection of reports designed to give a business officer indications of performance and the ability to proactively manage finances based on trends and a variety of performance indicators. With an enterprise to individual approach, pages within this dashboard can be run at a high level summary view across the enterprise, while also allowing the ability to drill all the way to line item information.

The Investment Funds Spending & Market Value Dashboard provides endowment and related spending project information to the broader finance community. This dashboard will provide users the ability to view endowment and spending project information; drill to journal level detailed information; budget for scholarship spending in an effort to reduce financial aid impact to unrestricted funds; and see details related to restricted fund utilization. This dashboard contains data from Compass and Fund driver to give users a more complete picture of endowment funds in one source.
