Cal Answers Financials - September 2018 Project Update

The team is working toward the shutdown of BAIRS on December 22 and is on track to release the final set of dashboards, including PermBudg and Finance Ad Hoc. After release 10 in October, all the existing reporting capabilities in BAIRS will be built in Cal Answers.

  • Release 1 (Financial Management Reporting)
  • Release 2 (Gifts and Endowments)
  • Release 3 (Enhanced Financial Management Reporting)
  • Release 4 (HR Position Management, Workforce Detail and Compensation Summary)

  • Release 7 (HR Affirmative Action Dashboard and Termination Report)
  • Release 8 (Multi-Year Reporting, Payroll, Chartfield Lookup, IST Billing, and IST Phone Usage)
