UCF Financials Standard Budget Ledger Training

Finance and Accounting is pleased to announce the availability of online training supporting the implementation of the UCF Financials Standard Budget Ledger, and to remind UCF Financials users about instructor-led workshops previously announced. 

The Standard Budget Ledger was implemented on April 6, 2015 as an integral part of an effort to provide the entire university community with enhanced financial data accessibility, transparency, and consistent financial reporting across departments. With Standard Budget Ledger, UCF Financials users now have access to a variety of new tools and processes to create and maintain departmental budgets by category and the ability to run reports that will help to forecast and monitor spending. The new online training course announced today provides an introduction and guided instruction in helping users learn to use the new tools.

The two training courses are described below, and one or the other is required for users seeking security access in UCF Financials to either create or approve budget journals.  Register for them using Employee Self Service in the myUCF portal.

The online course: FBU120 UCF Financials Budgeting Tools - This self-paced, online training course will teach you the steps needed to develop draft (DFT) and final (FIN) budgets each fiscal year in the Standard Budget Ledger (SBL) of UCF Financials. You will learn how to do the following:

* Run reports to view, track, and plan future spending
* Allocate funds using draft and final allocation reports
* Complete budget transfers in the SBL
* Use the Tree Viewer in UCF Financials to review the budget ledger hierarchy, report types, and budget categories

The instructor-led workshop: FBU121 UCF Budgeting Tools Workshop - This instructor-led workshop will teach you the steps needed to develop draft (DFT) and final (FIN) budgets each fiscal year in the Standard Budget Ledger (SBL) of UCF Financials.
