Finance August 2022 Update

ATP’s Finance Team is three months into the Architect (Design) Stage of the Workday implementation.  

What We Are Working On

FSPD Playback Sessions

The Finance Strategy Team started the third phase of the finance Future State Process Design (FSPD) sessions in July. This third phase, the Playback, has included members from the following groups: Design Teams, Focus Groups, Validation Team, and Governance. Playback sessions are an opportunity to share information regarding how future-state processes and Workday configuration has been designed, as well as to collect broad stakeholder feedback. 

The following Playback sessions were held in July:

  • Spend Authorization
  • Customers
  • Accounting Journal
  • Internal Service Delivery
  • Customer Invoice
  • Expense Report
  • Accounting Adjustment

Architect Sessions

The ATP Finance Design Teams continue working with their Focus Group members in Architect Design sessions. Architect Design sessions focus on core Workday configuration within each functional area, including the design of less complex business processes​. These sessions will happen throughout the Architect Stage.

FDM Mapping

The General Ledger Design Team has started FDM (Foundation Data Model) mapping sessions. These sessions start the discussion with our campuses on the transition to the new chart of account structure in Workday.

Cross-Functional Collaboration With IT

In addition to the design work, the ATP Design Teams have also been involved in cross-functional sessions with various IT teams to start the planning for conversion data mapping, integrations, and reporting.
