DFL Forum
Thanks again for your participation in yesterday's DFL Forum. We won't be sharing the slides electronically this month, but Interim AVC-HR Jo Mackness' team will be sending you an email shortly outlining the HR planning tools discussed. 

Intersection Detail Reports
Intersection Detail Reports are available on the OCFO Google Drive for campus finance professionals to look up their campus commitments or other campus support that the Financial Planning & Analysis team has seeded into their Forecast and Operating Budget in Cal Plan. The reports show campus commitments only; they do not provide details on other aspects of support that were seeded into Divisional Forecasts/Budgets.
