Accurate reporting of physical assets presents unique challenges for financial managers. While tracking the physical location, movement and utilization of assets is a discipline in itself, an organization’s financial management operation is responsible for ensuring that spending, capitalization and custodial information are all correctly recorded and accounted for. 

A lack of integration between the financial, procurement, and asset management systems may result in the assets not being capitalized on the general ledger, or in the loss of visibility of the asset’s custodial information, location, and condition after deployment. Events may happen to an asset during its lifecycle that materially affect its book value, such as capital improvements or impairments, transfers of custody, or disposal. The impacts of these events may not be reflected on the general ledger without a link to the asset records. 

Sunflower integrates with Momentum®, CGI’s built-for-federal financial management solution. Download the brochure to learn more about how the integration benefits federal agencies.
