Can we improve the UL Program?

MAIS wants to improve its communication and collaboration with you. We need your ideas on how the UL Program can serve you better. If you think we need to improve the program, please take the time to participate in a survey about the MAIS Unit Liaison (UL) Program. If you think we don't need to change a thing, please tell us that too. Even if you don't attend UL meetings regularly, we want to hear from you.

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete, and is available on the Web at:

Please respond by Friday, November 21.

Your input will help us improve the program, which we believe is a vital communication channel between campus units and MAIS.
Survey results will help:
-- Identify ways we can improve the program and increase its value to you and your unit as well as to the University.
-- Provide us with more information about the tools and support you need to fulfill your UL role and responsibilities.

Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts about the UL Program. We will report results during upcoming UL meetings.

New Treasurer's Office Catalog Available in My LINC

My LINC now includes an additional catalog with training resources for the Treasurer's Office. Financial Unit Liaisons are receiving this message as a courtesy notification of the change. There are no M-1 access roles or responsibilities related to the catalog at this time.

The Treasurer's Office catalog provides resources for departmental end users who conduct:

-- Departmental Cash Management activities: University units that deposit monies and/or use the online Cash Receipt Ticket must be certified prior to making deposits, and must recertify every two years. My LINC contains the new Depository Certification eLearning, simulation, and documentation materials for certification and training.
Note: Monthly instructor-led training will still be offered for Depositors by the Treasurer's Office, if desired as an alternative to the eLearning course. Registration for instructor-led sessions can be made online using My LINC.

-- (COMING SOON!) Merchant Card activities: University units that accept credit cards for payment of goods/services they supply must complete the merchant certification training. My LINC contains the new Merchant Certification eLearning and simulation materials. Optional lab sessions will still be offered annually for Merchant Contacts in need of assistance by the Treasurer's Office.
Note: The Departmental Cash Management resources are available today, but the Merchant Card materials will be available later this winter.
