On July 19, 2012, Georgetown University kicked-off a project to implement the GMS financial system as a replacement for the PeopleSoft financials and financial access+ applications. The GMS finance system will include the functionalities of general ledger, procurement and payment, grants management, business assets, and endowment accounting.
This new and modern financial system will offer new opportunities for capturing and reporting on the University’s financial activities, and Georgetown will always be running the current version of the product. New automated procedures will simplify transaction processing by eliminating most of the paper form processing, providing electronic approvals, and the ability to attach pertinent documents to transactions in the system.
The project go-live date is set for July 1, 2014 presenting the University with an exciting but busy year ahead. The GMS system belongs to all of us, and we must all work together to configure a system that will best support Georgetown for years to follow.
Please use this website as a resource for the financial system to find information on project updates, resources, system functionalities, and ultimately user training and help.
Together we can simplify our workday!
