Financial and Administrative Systems

These are the University's legacy mainframe computer systems:

Budget Driver (BGT)
The Budget Driver system is used by the UW to allocate and track funding.

Financial Accounting System (FAS)
UW's financial reporting system captures all revenues and expenditures.

Purchasing & Accounting System (PAS)
Purchasing and Accounts Payable system that provides detailed information on goods and services purchased through the central purchase order system.  UPDATE:  PAS will no longer be available for purchase order activity as of January 2016.  All procurement will be made using the Ariba eProcurement system.

Payroll System (HEPPS)
UW Payroll database system which provides information on individual faculty and staff payroll including current funding allocation and funding history by each payroll period and by budget number.

Student Database (SDB)
Database to manage student registration, transcripts, tuition, scholarship activity and class offerings and lists.


The University has developed a Strategic Roadmap to set forth a long-term vision and comprehensive plan for the future of UW information management and administrative systems.
