Financial Systems Support

Reporting to the campus Controller, the Financial System Support team works to ensure the campus financial systems are well supported, well integrated, and continually improved. 

The team responds to changing needs and new technologies and offers smart solutions to the UC Merced campus community with a goal to offer agile, flexible, and user-friendly financial systems capable of enabling diverse and complex financial activity.

The Financial Systems Support team is vigilant when new systems are introduced or changes to existing systems are made, knowing that sometimes a small change designed to improve one system can impact others down the line. When a system breaks or fails, we work with our technical team and stakeholders to fix it, test and retest, and find the root cause of the problem. 

Financial Systems Support (FSS) is now utilizing ServiceNow for inquiries and support. Visit the DFA Service Catalog Page to view a list of services we provide and submit your request.
