Accounting System Selection

Thrive by Five Washington and the Foundation for Early Learning (FEL) are merging in order to have a deeper impact and be more effective in our communities, and the new organization will continue to provide high-quality programs and services to some of our state’s most vulnerable communities.

The new organization, resulting from the merger, needs a single accounting system in place by June 20, 2014 (they will run concurrent systems in the interim) and Thrive is seeking a volunteer to review both organizations’ current accounting systems and make a recommendation on what system the merged organization should use. Currently, Thrive uses QuickBooks Enterprise, and FEL uses Raisers Edge Financial Edge.

Examples of work to be performed:

Conduct a comprehensive assessment of the accounting systems currently in place at each organization, identify differences and recommend:

  • The merged organization move forward with either of the two systems currently used;
  • A new accounting system for the merged organization to transition to.

Desired Deliverable:

  • Prepare and present to the transition steering committee an assessment of the strengths/weaknesses of the two accounting systems and a recommendation for moving forward with one of the systems, or a new system.
  • Would like complete by March 2014
