· Adoption of the Florida PALM Standardized Business Process Model
· Transition to the Florida PALM Chart of Accounts values
· Replacement of Central, Payroll and Departmental FLAIR functionality

Of the 1,500+ computing assets, over 1,000 are reports containing financial data. These reports primarily consist of a listing of detailed financial transactions requiring staff to spend hours manipulating the data into a format so that it can be analyzed.

To prepare for the transition to Florida PALM, our agency is seeking a resource knowledgeable in Microsoft Power BI to start building financial dashboards to replace our existing data extract reports. Our goal is to transform our data into actionable data insights that our organization can use for true management decision support.

Our management has the vision to transform our department into a truly data driven organization and we just need the right resource to help us execute that vision.
