FMS FY 2015 Soft Close Reporting Available
The FY 2015 Soft Close Database is now available for reporting. The FY 2015 Hard Close Database will become available later in August. To access the environment:
1. Log into SWIFT
2. Click the FMS Year End Reporting link
3. Next, click FY 2015 Soft Close
In the future, MMB plans to discontinue making copies of the database at both soft and hard close, but have the data available in the warehouse to meet reporting needs. To assist with planning for the transition to the warehouse, please take note of how your agency relies on the soft and hard close databases.
1. What specific reports or queries do you run against the soft and hard close databases?
2. What specific panels/screens within the soft and hard close databases are you accessing?
3. Who are the users within your agency that are accessing the soft and hard close databases?
Please send your answers to the above questions to Michelle Weber, ERP Director, at michelle.weber@state.mn.us, no later than October 30.
