Charles Darwin University’s (CDU) Finance and Asset Services, Budgeting and Business Systems team have recently implemented a budgeting and reporting tool called COGNOS.
COGNOS Enterprise Planning is a modelling, planning, budgeting and forecasting tool allowing for web based consolidation of budgeting information and financial reporting.
The COGNOS tool will allow cost centre managers to enter their budgets online, enabling collation of the budget for management and governance purposes. It will also provide online reporting facilities.
The 2007 CDU budget will be created using COGNOS.
COGNOS is now available for you to undertake training and the preparation of your 2007 budget data namely staff salary details and review of 2006 actual costs which have been loaded.
Prior to having access granted you will be required to undergo a short period of training. Budgeting and Business Systems training officer, Gary Phillips, will be providing training sessions over the next month. Ongoing support will also be provided.
Please contact Gary Phillips on 7259 to arrange your training dates.
