Go-Live & Due Dates

Following the 2015/16 budget process, BPS will initially be released without staff salary information in order to maximize the time that the budget system is available to you.  After HR has completed the staff salary-setting process, salaries will be uploaded into the BPS labor module.  This update will require no action on your part.

Tuesday, June 20th

Thursday, June 29th

2017/18 staff salary information uploaded into BPS

Balanced budgets due to Finance liaisons

 

 

Refresher Training

Refresher training sessions will provide a high level review of the entire BPS system, and also highlight new functionality that has been added for the upcoming year.  Three group training sessions are scheduled (please sign up only for 1), and the capacity for each session will be 30 people.  An on-line signup sheet (Doodle) will be sent for users to sign-up for a session.

Additional Budget System Support

 

Open Labs:

In addition to training, open labs and one-on-one sessions with Finance liaisons will be offered during the budget season. Because of the large number of budget units in H&S, we are strongly encouraging you to attend an open lab before scheduling a one-on-one session with your liaison. 

 

Please remember to bring your cell phone for two-step authentication and also a laptop computer.  If you don’t have a laptop, please let your Finance liaison know & we will provide a loaner.

 

If you’re planning on attending an Open Lab, please let your Finance liaison know which sessions.
