Uniform Statewide Accounting System (USAS)

In 1993, the state implemented KPMG’s R*STARS mainframe financial accounting software to provide General Ledger, Accounts Payable and limited Accounts Receivable, Grant Accounting, Project Accounting and Contract Tracking functionality. The state licensed and modified the code to meet the state’s business process and statutory requirements.

KPMG no longer supports or maintains the R*STARS product or code base. Many of the state agencies and institutions of higher education use the Uniform Statewide Accounting System (USAS) as their internal accounting system; the remaining agencies and institutions function as reporting agencies that provide agency or institutional data from their internal systems through a standard reporting interface.
