UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
UN Women uses PeopleSoft ERP system, referred to internally as “Atlas” which was implemented in 2004 and comprises various modules including, Accounts Payable, Contracts Module (used for management of revenues and receivables), General Ledger, Treasury Module, Human Resources, Grants and Project Management, Bank-to-Book (B2B) and Asset Management modules. UN Women has embarked on the process of migrating from the current PeopleSoft ERP to Oracle Cloud ERP. The implementation of the Oracle Cloud ERP will be staggered with target dates for the roll-out of different modules spread from the second half of 2021 and 2022.
Due to their central role Financial Management Section (FMS) plays in the accounting function at UN Women, FMS will be heavily involved in the implementation of the Oracle Cloud ERP including the review and configuration of the Chart of Accounts in the new ERP and play a key role in the configuration of all modules in the new ERP that result in recording of financial transactions, which is a cross-cutting function across all business owners of the ERP.
