were created for

Feedback,

expected to be
ongoing to
bring the web

professional
level for such a
large area as
Accounting

When
comparing the
05
Accounting

pages to the
fiscal 06 web

latter will
present a
much more

Use of Results
Current web
page is
meeting
minimal
information
needs of
customers.
Considerable
work needs
to be done
placing PDF
forms in the
web pages.
Coordination
between
supervisors and
Associate
Comptrollers
needs to occur
to identify
current weak
points in the
web pages.
Then the
Administrative
Assistant needs
to prepare forms
missing from
the web pages
into PDF format
to attach to web
pages. Then
coordination
with IT to
enhance web
sites needs to
occur.
A couple of forms
were either added or
updated during this
period offering more
availability of
current information
to users of Payroll
and District Cashier
information. In
addition a very
useful link was
added to Payroll's
site linking
employees to the site
which provides their
leave information.
Also, a link to
completing the IRS
W-4 as added for
employees. We
would still like to
add the General
Accounting New
Account Request
form.
Information is made
readily available to
customers and
employees.
In Progress
Current
collection
rate offered
is 25% and
XXX of
placements.
Reports from
new collection
agency will be
reviewed
monthly to
monitor
performance
and adherence
to agreed upon
contract
conditions.
Collection rate is at
a rate 100% better
than the previous
year and the
collection cost per
placement is also at
a lower rate (19%)
for first placements.
The over $400,000
dollars in collections
has reduced the
amount of the
accounts receivables
due the College.
