  • Train employees from all University functions to properly utilize the Financial Information system, Physical Plant system, Purchasing system and other cross- functional systems
  • Continue to automate functions by research, testing, implementing, and supporting the decentralization of current central processes.
  • Serve as liaison, team member and/or facilitator in all current and future projects related to technological improvements in the area of Finance and Planning.


Our Systems


Kronos is a web based time & attendance application used by non-instructional staff and students to capture leave time (i.e. sick days, vacation, leaves of absence, etc.) and to more efficiently enter time worked for the processing of semi-monthly payrolls. Users have the ability to review, change, or approve employees’ time, as well as use the system to set schedules and generate reports.

Business Card Program

The new Business Card Program includes a purchasing card, corporate travel card, fleet card and ghost card. The purchasing card is for everyday business expenses, the corporate travel card is for travel and entertainment expenses. The transportation department will utilize the fleet card for fuel and the ghost card is a card used for individual vendors.

The New Business Card program follows many of the same policies (retention of receipts, tax exempt purchases, etc.). Training on the new system is required for all card holders, as well as each card holder will be required to fill out a New Card Agreement.

Chrome River

As part of the Accounts Payable initiative to go green, we’re very excited to introduce the new Pace University Travel and Expense reimbursement system, Chrome River

Chrome River brings simplicity and ease to the expense reimbursement process and will replace the current paper-based/Excel T&E process. 

  • Receipts will be scanned or take a picture with your mobile phone, submitted, and approved electronically
  • Secure online paperless environment
  • Approve T&E’s from anywhere using your laptop, tablet, or mobile phone
  • Monitor every step of the reimbursement process from your computer


What does this mean?

Paper T&E forms are no longer accepted for reimbursements. 

Faculty and staff who currently complete T&E forms should only use the new electronic travel and expense reimbursement system - Chrome River.
