To: All Faculty and Staff

The planned shutdown of RFSUNY’s Oracle E-Business Suite and related reporting applications to facilitate a system-wide upgrade has been postponed. The shutdown was to have taken place from November 22 to December 2. A revised shutdown period will be set and adequately communicated to the community.
All operations related to Procurement, Human Resources, Sponsored Programs and Grants Management will continue uninterrupted; SciQuest, PIAI, QuickView and Discoverer will continue to be available.
The shutdown was delayed due to several issues identified during the previous three weeks of testing. The issues were related to browser and Java incompatibility, data reports and the need for additional training.
We thank all the participants for their continued work in testing as we move toward a successful upgrade and roll-out.
