NAU Advantage 3 Financial

Advantage is NAU’s system of record for financial transactions created directly in the system and those interfaced from subsidiary systems. Advantage modules encompass chart of accounts, general accounting, purchasing, accounts payable, travel, budgeting and cost accounting. Transactions entered through these modules are posted to the system’s accounting journals and ledgers, which in turn serve as the basis for the University’s annual financial statements and other reporting requirements. Information Technology Services -provides technical support for Advantage batch processes, security configuration and problem resolution.

System modifications will be evaluated and implemented based on direction by the NAU Financial Change Management Committee.  

Transactions processed through Advantage are subject to Policies & Procedures set forth by the Comptroller’s Office and Purchasing department. All Advantage users should refer to these policies and procedures when processing transactions through Advantage.
