Members of the spend workstream have come together for their first focus group meeting with representatives from schools and units.
- A shared understanding of how Spend processes can and should work
- A common-sense approach to Spend, distilling complexity until we can get our processes as clean and simple as possible.
- A universal language to articulate business needs.
At their first meeting, focus group participants echoed the wishes of attendees of the August Fiscal Administrator's meeting, with questions regarding approvals and routing, data integrity in Workday, transparency, and more.
Topics for upcoming meetings include requisition and expense report approval flow, receiving in Workday, catalog vs. non-catalog requisitioning, payee/supplier management, invoice routing and approvals, and how to locate common queries.
Focus group meetings are currently held on an ad-hoc basis but will happen more frequently as we approach go-live and require feedback on demonstrations.
