ADMINISTRATIVE LETTER NO.:   17

POLICY CODE:   DB/KLL

 

TO:                   Superintendents of Schools, Assistant Superintendents, Business Managers and Bookkeepers

FROM:             Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner

RE:                    Survey of Accounting Software Packages and Related Costs

DATE:              November 4, 2004

As we continue to move forward in our search to find the best way to get financial data from School Administrative Units to the Department of Education, we believe it would be useful to gather some basic information from School Administrative Units as to their accounting software packages and the related cost.

This information will allow us to identify all the vendors currently being used by school administrative units and provide these vendors with the opportunity to meet with us regarding the future collection of financial data.   The related cost data that you provide will assist us in assessing the financial impact of accounting software packages on school administrative units and help us make better decisions in the future for the collection of financial data.

We would ask that you, or the person responsible, answer the questions that can be found at the following web site:    http://www.maine.gov/education/medms/Survey.htm Please complete this survey by November 30, 2004.

Your cooperation on this matter is greatly appreciated.
