To give people a feel for what it will be like to use the new SAP financial system, a presentation will be held on Thursday, Jan. 30 from noon-1pm in Rm 10-250.
The Working Group on Support Staff Issues and the Management Reporting (MR) project are co-sponsoring the program.
Katherine Cochrane, MR project manager, will provide a brief overview on the use of SAP at MIT. Project member Robert Murray will give a demonstration, covering topics such as creating a requisition in SAP, obtaining a purchase order and viewing accounting statements online. Cindy Vallino, the project's training coordinator, will describe plans for training SAP users.
Questions can be submitted in advance by e-mail to Tawney Wray, <email@example.com>, or Joanne Jones, <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Both are members of the Working Group's reengineering task group, which has arranged the event. Questions will be organized and answered at the end of the presentation.
Though the program is geared toward support and administrative staff who will ultimately use SAP, all members of the MIT community are welcome to attend.
