Research Newsletter Report 9/30/22

September 30, 2022

A report by interim Vice Chancellor and Chief Information Officer to the Research Newsletter:

This week, we completed the last step of our fiscal close process by completing the year-end process and rolling forward the budgets for FY23. With all the steps now complete, we are moving forward with proactive accounting and budgeting measures to support the campus for the current fiscal year and future fiscal years. You may experience a small delay in establishing a new contract or grant as a result of this required rollover process, but we anticipate returning to our normal turnaround times in the very near future.

As a reminder, we will hold the next Oracle Town Hall on Oct. 10 from 3-4 p.m. to discuss the improvements we have made over the recent months and to outline our directions for the upcoming year. In addition, we will hold our third Oracle Reboot Camp for staff members who support the campus’s use of the Oracle system from 9-11 a.m. on Oct. 13. We strongly encourage all staff who regularly interact with the Oracle system to attend as these reboot camps are critical to your understanding of the Oracle system.

Please note that our DFA Service Catalog provides valuable links to important activities that support your research efforts. We would encourage you all to bookmark this page to facilitate easy use.
