The knowledge, as the main factor of national's economy competitive ability, is the bed of each country's development. Universities are the frame of society based on knowledge which integration is main precondition for their undisturbedly activities. Three basic aspects imposed as a crucial query to the reform: organizational, educational and financial aspect. In the near future, through planned integration of the University, supply process centralization of all its parts is expected. As this process is extremely complex, analytical reporting system is required. In order to make the University supply process transparent, and the planning and controlling system more effective, it is necessary to ensure the quality use of information and communication technology in Croatian universities. This paper examines the use of SAP system as a software support in the university supply process, and analyses the effects this system has on business and science university functions. Use of SAP system will enable integration and connection in financial information system between university and all its parts, between Ministry of Science, Education and Sports and the State Treasury. The project of implementing integral system in business processes makes the supply planning process, as a key prerequisite for drawing up and adopting the budget, more effective. By using description method, information system for financial management based on SAP R/3 system as a future software support in the supply process, will be explained.
