CAHNRS Business Center hopes to provide you with the information needed for staff, faculty, public affiliates, foreign scholars, undergraduate students, graduate students, research assistants, student workers and temporary employees. Our mission is to help our people with the upcoming transition with WorkDay and help them see how it affects them. We’ve provided resources we hope can be used to gain a better understanding of WorkDay. If you have any questions, feel free to let us know!

Workday will replace all of these systems that are used.

Reconciliation, reviewing transactions for Procurement cards (P-Cards) and requests for expenditure authority signatures will all be in one place, Workday workflow.

For everyone, there will be more transparency when looking over budgets and knowing what's available financially. For example, for anyone wanting to order something they can see if they have the funds for it or not on their own. There will be more awareness of funds available and where they are going.

Retention for paper copies may change. Stay tuned.
