CFS and Finance Data Warehouse, as well as other PeopleSoft systems, will be unavailable from 12:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 3rd through 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 4th. The Chancellor’s Office (CO) is migrating all CSU campuses to a new data center during this time and all central systems must be offline to make the move. This downtime will only affect the PeopleSoft systems. It will not affect any other services (e.g. FTS and SJSU Email) you typically access through the my.sjsu.edu application portal.
For more information about the outage, updates or changes to the schedule, visit the my.sjsu.edu application portal. Please forward this message to any staff or faculty you feel should be notified.
The CSU adjusted its mileage reimbursement rates to reflect the new IRS rates. The mileage rate changes are as follows and apply to business travel occurring on or after January 1, 2018:
- The standard mileage rate increased from 53.5 cents per mile to 54.5 cents per mile.
- Miles driven for moving purposes will be reimbursed at 18 cents per mile, increased from 17 cents per mile.
The FTS Travel module reflects the standard mileage rate appropriate to the date(s) the mileage was incurred. If you have any questions, please contact FinanceConnect at ext. 4-1558 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please forward this message to any staff or faculty you feel should be notified.
For employees who track or manage department budgets, please note that the month of December 2017 is now closed in CFS.
This means that the General Ledger (GL) system will not accept any more entries with an December journal date. December transactions can still be entered into the GL system, but the journal date must be 1/1/2018 or later. The current period open is January 2018.
