FAST Information


FAST Finance Reporting is the application used at the U of S to view financial statements (operating/income statements, balance sheets) for your funds.

FAST is accessed via PAWS in the UniFi Self-Service channel of the Admin Services tab. If you do not see any financial information channels within that tab (such as UniFi Self-Service, UniFi Plus or Crystal Reports), you must request access to the system.
