Welcome to Project Arian, a University-wide project to introduce a modern and standardised financial management, projects management and procurement system across Cardiff University.
Part of the University’s wider strategy to deliver a 21st Century Information Technology infrastructure, over the next five years Project Arian will deliver a more robust, single gateway for staff to carry out finance, research management and procurement tasks quickly and accurately.
“Project Arian is not simply about implementing a new IT finance system, it is about improving day-to-day ways of working across the University to support future growth and development. This is a project that will provide Schools and Divisions with more time, far greater control over budgets and projects and greater autonomy, enabling decisions to be made at a local level."
Professor Peter Blood, Deputy Vice Chancellor and Chair of the Project Arian Steering Group
