Administrative Information Systems (AIS)

The Virginia Community College System (VCCS) replaced the FRS legacy software with an Administrative Information System (AIS) for finance.

It reengineered our automated and manual business processes, along with the development and implementation of interfaces to VCCS and Commonwealth of Virginia Systems. The objective is to improve service delivery to our students, faculty and staff.

Other benefits of using the system include:

  • Enhanced interoperability with other VCCS internal and external application systems.
  • Information sharing, elimination of redundant data entry and business process improvement.
  • Implementing software to effectively process mission critical administrative functions within the VCCS System Office and the 23 colleges of the VCCS.
