Page 3 SAO State Accounting Office History of Reporting Georgia produces 5 main financial reports annually Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) Budgetary Compliance Report (BCR) Selected Summary Financial Information (Treasury Operations) Single Audit Report (SAR*) Section 1512 Reporting (produced quarterly) (ARRA*) For FY2010 & FY2011 reporting Hyperion was used for the CAFR, BCR and Treasury Operations. SAR and ARRA have not been migrated to Hyperion.
Page 4 SAO State Accounting Office History of Reporting 50 organizations are reported in the BCR Approximately 350 trial balances (comprised of ~130 organizations) are reported in the CAFR ~ 45 of the organizations reported in the CAFR are on a common ledger system (PeopleSoft). PeopleSoft primarily maintains ledgers on a statutory (budget) basis and is converted to GAAP reporting is collected through year-end forms. SAO utilizes the data on the year-end forms and other sources to post conversion entries in HFM. Data is also gathered from CPA audited financial statements for some organizations included in the CAFR.
Page 5 SAO State Accounting Office Challenges with Legacy System Time CAFR and BCR were not consistently being issued by required 12/31 deadline Cost Create separate import files for each organization Manually map each line of T/B to the applicable reporting line Consolidation of various reporting levels could take hours and the system (Caseware) often crashed prior to completion. Manually enter information collected in year-end forms to consolidate and prepare the notes Manually close out revenue/expense Quality Difficult to analyze data across funds (i.e., cash for a single entity)

Page 9 SAO State Accounting Office Benefits of HFM Improve Quality Standardized mapping for common G/L users and ability to load data in a single upload file Reduced load time provides additional time to analyze data Data can be reviewed across organizations and fund types from a single system Ability to more efficiently analyze year over year trends and provide support for MD&A analysis Flexibility Easy to create and modify excel files to retrieve data from HFM using SmartView No limit to the number of Excel SmartView files
Page 10 SAO State Accounting Office Project Highlights Entire timeline took less than 6 months to complete Used a consulting firm to assist with application setup SmartView functionality made it easy to convert write-up files from prior system to Hyperion links Created rules in HFM thereby reducing the number of AJEs required Created supplemental data accounts to track dates received and applicability status of year-end forms Utilized an Excel JE template to upload journals to HFM (maximum of 5K lines long)
