CMS Technical Services will be performing CFS production updates starting at 6:00 PM until 10:00 PM on December 14, 2022. Users will not be able to access CFS Production, CFS Data Warehouse application and database services, including Process Schedulers and Integration Broker will be unavailable.
The CSU is upgrading the current Common Financial System (CFS) 9.2 with Maintenance Pack 5.0. This is a systemwide implementation which will allow us to continue operating within an Oracle-supported CFS environment. The upgrade is scheduled to go-live the morning of Monday, November 21, 2022.
In order to accommodate the upgrade, CFS will be unavailable to all campuses starting from 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 18 until 9:00 a.m. on Monday, November 21.
How will the CFS shutdown affect campus users?
- Financial Transaction Services (FTS) will be available for users to view, create, submit, and approve Requisitions, Vouchers, Transfers and HR Expense Adjustments. However, FTS transactions will be on hold from distribution until CFS is available again.
- Change Orders, ProCard/GoCard Statement Submission and e-Invoice Submission in FTS will not be available.
- CFS Data Warehouse will not be available from November 18 at 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. on November 21.
Do I need to do anything?
No action is needed. User’s access to the modules in CFS will remain unchanged and homepage collections/favorites will migrate to CFS MP 5.0.
