This is a planned outage.

The UW System's shared financial system, SFS, will be upgraded in October from PeopleSoft version 9.1 to version 9.2. To find out more about the project and what will be changing, see the project website at https://www.wisconsin.edu/sfs/sfs-9-2-upgrade-project/. The upgrade will result in a shutdown of UW-Eau Claire’s financial platform from Friday, Oct. 5, through Wednesday, Oct. 10. What does this mean for you? Processes in accounting, procurement and expenses will experience potentially significant delays in processing during the shutdown and the following week. If a department has a financial transaction that must be completed before Oct. 15, the transaction must be delivered to the appropriate area by Thursday, Sept. 27. Travel expense reimbursement reports (TERs) must be submitted as soon as possible to be approved before the Oct. 5 shutdown. No TERs can be created or approved from Oct. 5-10. Any TERs not approved before the shutdown will be returned to you to be resubmitted after the update. TERs must be submitted within 90 days of the last day of travel. Cash advances for any travel before Oct. 29 also need to be fully approved before 6 p.m. Oct. 4. Cash advance requests will be DELETED from the system during the update. Questions?
