Business Intelligence is scheduled for maintenance during the regular window from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28. Also, we are reminded that Shared Financial Services (SFS) will be upgrading to 9.2 in October, requiring an extended outage from October 5-9.

NOTE: Due to the release of vendor updates and patches outside ITS control, any university system may experience brief intermittent outages.  Because these updates may be released any time it is not possible to include them all in this list.

If you are not able to access a system during the maintenance hour, please wait a couple of minutes and try again.  If you continue to experience problems, please contact the ITS Help Desk.

Extended outage - Shared Financial Services (SFS) - October 5-9

From the September 2018 edition of For Pete's Sake (the HR department newsletter):

The Shared Financial System (SFS) will be upgrading to 9.2 in October 2018. Similar to the HRS and PASS upgrades, the SFS upgrade will provide a different look but very similar functionality.  

End user training on E-reimbursement will be conducted in September 2018; watch for an email with registration information. 

The system will be down from October 5-9 and will be available again October 10.  During the October upgrade time, SFS will not be available for E-reimbursement, purchase orders*, vendor payments, or general ledger transfers so get your transactions in early.  *Purchase orders are down starting October 4.
