Web-Based Financial and Administrative Tools

These are the UW web tools available to create the essential financial reports required to manage budgets, manage employee information, approve and document travel expenditures, manage procurement transactions and administer grants:

Business Intelligence Portal

Enterprise Data Warehouse

 A central repository of the University of Washington's electronically stored institutional data. This repository is organized in a way that is meaningful for business analysis and reporting. The Enterprise Reporting program produces reports across all data areas (student, finance, human resources, and research) to meet central and local needs. It defines data needs, creates institutional data definitions, prioritizes and develops reports, and provides online access to reports and definitions.  Additional information and a list of reports is available on the Decision Support. website.

Example of Report:  Fiscal year income and expense summary by funding source
