Dear H&S Finance Colleagues,

Congratulations on hosting multiple graduations.  What a special and unique weekend for so many.  Summer is finally here and today we announce the opening of the Budget Planning System (BPS).  You can access BPS from the quick link section on the H&S Finance Website.  Please take a moment to go into the tool and ensure you have access to your unit.  Notice that the labor module is disabled.  Labor data will be ready next Thursday, June 23.  To help prepare for using the tool, we invite you to attend the upcoming BPS training sessions.  For those who can’t attend, the live zoom trainings will be recorded and posted on the H&S Finance Website.
