Alternatives to Printed Statements

In order to help the University of Michigan achieve a greener campus, the mailed Statements of Activity (SOAs) will no longer be available after January 2010. This information is readily available through eReconciliation, BusinessObjects, and online versions of the reports. Use these alternatives to reconcile your monthly activity online without printing – and help U-M conserve energy and resources!

BusinessObjects

The following reports are available in the U-M maintained folder:

  • CMB Department Reconciler Report
  • CMB Project/Grant Reconciler Report
  • CMB eReconciliation by Fund, Dept, Prgm
  • CMB eReconciliation by Project/Grant
  • FN01 RevExp Statement of Activity by Fund, Dept, Program (Prgm optional)
  • FN01 RevExp Statement of Activity by PG
  • FN01 RevExp Statement of Activity by PG run by DeptID
  • FN06 Procurement SOA Voucher Detail by Fund/Dept/Program or Project Grant
  • FN01 RevExp Chartfield Activity Summary by Department

Training: To learn how to run BusinessObjects reports, check out these eLearning courses in My LINC:

Access: Users need the Financials Data Set Role from FN Data Warehouse section on Financials and Physical Resources tab through OARS. Combined (CMB) reports return data from multiple data sets. CMB reports will not include complete results unless you have access to all the data sets identified in parenthesis at the end of the report names.

*Completed enhancements: : Added a report to identify financial activity for all ChartFields run by department for a specified accounting period. Run the new “FN01 RevExp Chartfield Activity Summary by Department” report to determine which ChartField combinations need to be reconciled for that accounting period.
