The new Statewide Financial System (SFS) is now in use at DMNA and all other NYS agencies. SFS has replaced NY's 25+ year-old Central Accounting System and several agency financial management systems with one integrated, statewide system. The new system is intended to perform the State's primary fiscal and business management tasks more efficiently.
The SFS is now part of daily life at DMNA - especially for employees who purchase items or travel on DMNA business using NYS funds. The SFS is intended to provide efficiency, effectiveness and streamlining of business processes including purchasing and travel/expense payments.
The new system provides some great benefits including:
Roughly translated, it means that we will be using less paper for purchasing and for travel, travel calculations will be made by the system (no more figuring out the per diems!) and vendors and travelers will be able to get paid more quickly.
For the most current information related to DMNA SFS Implementation- see the NEWS page.
Just because SFS is now in use doesn't mean the opportunities to learn and train on the system are gone. There are a variety of ways for End-Users and potential End-Users to help themselves learn how to complete transactions using SFS.
The SFS website, www.sfs.ny.gov, is your primary hub for the majority of all the information you will need to guide you through common transaction. See the links below to bring you directly to some key areas:
