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.
- 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
