The Common Financial System is a Chancellor's Office project that consolidates the PeopleSoft financial systems of 22 CSU campuses and the Chancellor’s Office. The intent is to standardize financial business processes across the campuses to simplify and reduce the costs of system implementations and maintenance. Cal State L.A. converted from the PeopleSoft financial application to CFS in July 2011.
