Go-Live date is May 1, 2014

As we near Go-Live, information pertinent to the transition from DEFINE for daily business operations and functions will be distributed around campus.  Be on the lookout for it.

Changes to Expect with the new Go-Live date:

  1. The cutover plan that marks the process to stop entering transactions in DEFINE and start entering them into UTShare/PeopleSoft is being revised.  Communications to the campus regarding critical cutover planned dates will be distributed in March & April.
  2. Departments will continue to utilize the BUD process in UT Direct for the FY 2014-15 Annual Operating Budget Development, which begins in March.  Campus use of the Hyperion Public Sector Planning and Budgeting (PSPB) system will be postponed until next year’s FY 2016 budget planning and development process. 

Stay Informed
