CFS is used by the Business Services Division, Campus Fiscal Officers, Administrative Secretaries, and Receiving Clerks to create, act upon, and review Purchase Orders, Invoices, Assets and Financial information. The annual Financial Report is derived from information in CFS. The CFS application interfaces with the BDS application, the HR application, and the Student Information System.
