The Finance Systems Group is a HES initiative involving the five HES sub-licencee's of Oracle Financials. The universities work collaboratively on issues relating to financial business processes and finance systems and include opportunities through case study events and workshops to liaise widely with Australian universities using other systems.
FSG forms an important network of finance systems professionals who are able to address business process issues and develop innovative projects associated with financial systems and requirements.
The FSG is seeking to establish a number of focus and interest groups in the area of university financial systems management in order to develop wider collaboration opportunities of benefit to the higher education sector.
Higher Ed Services holds an annual Finance and Procurement Conference that fosters knowledge sharing, discussion and networking for finance professionals in the sector.
