Reminder for OBI users: attend an OBI training session before November 1st!

Are you an OBI user at Harvard or a Harvard affiliate? If so, don't forget that CREW Grants Management reports will sunset on November 1st, 2016, so you'll need to attend one of our in-person OBI training sessions in September or October to ensure you are ready for the transition.

To get yourself ready for 11/1, please remember to:

fCOI System Anticipated Outage 9/23-9/25

In an effort to improve the performance and stability of administrative applications, HUIT is making changes to the databases accessed by certain FAS Administrative applications, including fCOI. The databases will be upgraded to a more modern, flexible, and resilient server arrangement. This change is being made both to ensure the technology behind the applications is up-to-date, and also to reduce the number of unexpected application outages we have been experiencing and which result from problems with the existing database servers.
