The Finance Section recently unveiled a new website. With the help of the Core Computing Division and Jean Reising of the Business Services Section, the re-designed SharePoint-based site will make it easy to find the finance-related information you’re looking for. If you visit the previous Finance Section website, you should be redirected to the new site automatically.
The new Doing Business with Fermilab Finance area of the site includes useful information for user institutions and suppliers regarding Finance Section contacts, indirect rates and accounts payable processing. This area of the site does not require a login ID.
For those who have a Services password, access is available to the internal user site, which includes the Web pages Rates, Reports and Policies; Reimbursement Services and Cashier; and Time, Attendance and Payroll.
Available from anywhere within the internal user site is the most popular link—WebQueries. Budget, costs and obligations of particular projects and tasks can be accessed with the task summary report and the task transaction detail reports; the status of accounts-receivable agreements is accessible via the AR agreement and invoice recap query; and specific requisitions and purchase orders can be found using eponymous queries.
Many other useful forms, policies, financial statements and links are available on the site, as is the Finance Section organization chart.
I hope you’ll visit the new site soon. We’d love to hear from you on how we can make the site more helpful and user-friendly in delivering financial services and information.
