FROM: Douglas A. Darling, Director
Division of Accounting & Auditing
Department of Financial Services
SUBJECT: State University System Transition From Florida Accounting Information Resource (FLAIR)

The remaining six State Universities will discontinue use of FLAIR July 1, 2004 in accordance with Section 1011.4105, Florida Statutes.

The FLAIR Journal Transfer process normally used for payment of vouchers and transfer of funds will not be available to the six devolving universities or to state agencies doing business with them after close of business, May 28, 2004. Agencies doing business with the six universities must convert to either a state warrant or direct deposit payment method. Departmental FLAIR disbursement functions should be changed, as needed, to make payments by warrant or direct deposit. The changes include such tasks as obtaining the correct vendor number and university name for each affected university. It also includes identifying contact people, obtaining mailing addresses and telephone numbers for delivery and/or problem resolution purposes. The list below provides a contact from each university for this transition:
