Financial Projection System (FiPS)
Financial Projection System (FiPS) a system designed to be used by investigators, departments, centers, and schools as a tool to create financial cost projections for one or more of their accounts. The system will allow users to query data from USC’s Enterprise Data Warehouse, combine it with projected payroll and spending details, and/or apply formulas to the existing data. From the existing and projected data or formulas, users will be able to generate summary reports and calculations for analysis.
- Projections by compensation plan and non-compensation line items
- Projections by a combination of the compensation plan and formulas only for non-compensation items
- Projections by formulas only for the compensation plan and non-compensation items
The three methodologies for financial projections will provide the flexibility required to satisfy the needs of individual investigators as well as departments, centers, and schools.
FiPS is available for user testing.
