ISP is Coming...Are You Ready?
We are affectionately calling the week before deployment on July 9 "Dim
Week" because the University's financial systems will be in transition,
and therefore, not fully operational. Here is information about what will
take place during that week and what you should anticipate.
is Dim Week?
During the week of July 1 through July 8, the week prior to deployment
of the Integrated System on July 9, all June 30 balances out of FAS and
ChemStores will be converted into the Oracle system, reconciled and verified.
It is a clearing period from the old systems to the new. When the system
goes live, those with the appropriate Oracle responsibilities will see
all balances and budgets in their PTAOs. Outstanding POs that are received
prior to 8/15 will be received in CAPPS and paid from FAS. Procurement
Services is running a report to identify CAPPS POs with delivery dates
after 8/15 that will not be received in CAPPS and paid in FAS. They will
enter new POs in Oracle to replace those. Click here
for more information.
do I do my work during this week?
Instructions on how
to carry out transactions during the week prior to deployment are
found at ISP Cutover Information websites.
and when will I be notified that I can do my work in the Integrated System?
If you have completed training for your responsibility and submitted a
signed confidentiality agreement to Human Resources, an email message
will be sent to you the week of June 25 with the information below.
for logging on (NOTE: This will be much easier if you have already downloaded
and installed the VPN and established your VPN account. For instructions,
You will have to log on to the VPN before logging on to Oracle.
- An initial
password that you will be prompted to change when you log on to Oracle
(Do not use any symbols, such as $ or @, in your Oracle password. Just
use letters and/or numbers.)
- A warning
that you will have to log on by July 12, or the account will
be deactivated. If the account is deactivated, you will have to call
the ITC Help Desk to have it reactivated. You will not be able to log
on during Dim Week.
I practice in the Sandbox during Dim Week?
You are encouraged to practice in Sandbox during this period. Be aware,
however, that there will be processes you could do in the Training instance
that you will not be able to do in Sandbox.
PTA Combinations report on website and in Discoverer
The link on the Integrated Systems website to finding your PTAOs first
listed the Project owning organization. When the link was changed to reflect
information actually in Oracle (also available in Discoverer report),
we listed the Award owning organization. We have now changed this so that,
once again, you will find your Project owning organization when you look
up your PTAOs.
