The University has been using SAP (subsequently renamed as CUSAP) since 1996 for its financial system.

CUSAP is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. It provides major functions for the processing and management of accounting data and the preparation of financial reports by the Finance Office (FNO). It has also been decentralized for use by all Departments / Units (D/Us), with a view to exploiting the full benefits available from the CUSAP ERP. E-forms and e-workflows on major finance-related functions are developed and placed on the CUSAP platform for processing transactions, auto-fund checking and vetting / approval communication between D/Us and FNO. CUSAP also provides an intact database for D/Us to retrieve and inquire financial information and transaction records including scanned copies uploaded by D/Us and FNO.
