Financial Services 26 Performance Highlights Crystal* has been used to develop and implement reports enabling reconciliation between the general ledger and the fixed asset subsidiary ledger. Agency reports are now presented in a timelier manner as they are prepared simultaneously for all agencies. Standardisation of stock-take procedures between regions has improved the currency and integrity of information loaded into the fixed assets ledger. Agencies can now more reliably interrogate their fixed asset database on-line using the fixed asset register wizard and then automatically email their search results back to the interrogating officer. The graph shows the number of assets for each of the last four years. Again there has been an increase in the number of assets. This is due to a revaluation exercise commenced late 2003/04, which identified a large number of previously unrecorded assets. These new assets were taken up in the database during the year. Audits No audits were undertaken on this product during the course of the year. Initiatives 2004/05 A carry over initiative from 2003/04 is the introduction of a new bar coding system, aimed at reducing the time and effort involved in stocktaking assets. It is expected that the current cost of this activity will reduce by up to 50% after successful implementation. Monthly reconciliation reporting will be automated between profit and loss and balance sheet accounts from the fixed assets subsidiary ledger to the general ledger saving considerable time and effort over the current manual reconciliation procedures. * Crystal is a proprietary reporting system, enabling users to easily generate web based reports. Much of the reporting within DCIS from mainframe databases is generated using Crystal reports. 0 5 10 15 20 2000/01 2001/02 2002/03 2003/04 N o. o f A ss et s (0 00 's ) Number of assets
