Team # 575 -- Insight Penn State
Finance and Business

January 2004


Objective: The Budget Office has initiated a new improvement project that so far we are calling Insight Penn State. It targets Fall 2005 for full implementation for an electronic version of the data packages for the Academic Colleges and Locations. The system will use the EIS COGNOS software tools and will provide secure access to the information provided. Everyone in our office except for our Network support staff is involved in the project.

Expected Results: Our basic measure of success will be feedback from the users of the new system, and discontinuing the distribution of paper reports.
