UVA is focusing on a robust and effective financial management approach enabled by a fully integrated cloud-based technology solution for the University, with the intention to leverage industry best practices, develop a future state business model, and enable the utilization of modernized tools.
Our goal is to reduce administrative burden, make compliance with regulations and policies easier and more consistent, strengthen our risk management framework, and allow the University community to better steward resources in support of its mission. At every turn, we seek to answer the key question: âœHow can we, through this transformation, make UVA a better university -- more preeminent in research and teaching, more deeply engaged in service, more accessible and affordable?
The project team is seeking mission-driven individuals who are flexible, team-oriented, and highly motivated to support UVA through the transformation and system changes. The team is seeking individuals across a broad variety of roles for business process analysis and improvement, reporting, technical integrations, conversions, and change management. We are excited by the opportunity this project presents to grow and develop our internal talent.

This position is initially limited to the duration of the project, currently estimated to be December 31, 2021. The Conversion Lead is eligible to participate in the generous FST incentive program.
