Banner Finance is currently operating on SCT's general release 5.2. This is two releases behind the current version. With our go-live date and the number of issues faced to stabilize the environment post-go-live, there has not been an opportunity to address implementation of a new release until now. As time goes on, particularly after HR goes live, USNH will be more current with SCT releases, but for now - there will be times when we linger behind.

Many of you have been involved in testing the new release which has been in test mode in the BTST environment for several weeks. Over 30 users participated in testing the system this past Tuesday. There are some areas that will present a slightly different interface to the user and some items that did not function previously that have now been corrected. These items will be reviewed and demonstrated in more detail at the BSC Forum scheduled for Wednesday October 2nd. Please attend if you possibly can.

The production environment will be upgraded over the weekend of October 4, 5, and 6. Yes, you did read that correctly, it includes Friday. It will require 3 days to fully upgrade the production environment. To accommodate this, the production environment will not be available on Friday, October 4th - for the entire day - Saturday, October 5th, and Sunday, October 6th. The system will be backed up - upgraded - and back in production for normal business Monday, October 7th. All invoices requiring checks as part of the Monday morning accounts payable check run will have to be entered, approved and posted by close of business Thursday, October 3rd to be included in the check selection process run Monday morning.

We look forward to seeing you at the BSC Forum. If you are unable to make the forum, materials and pointers of the changes will be available on the FYI web site about the same time as the Forum meeting, so please feel free to reference that site after Wednesday, October 2nd.
