STAR 

EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 15, 2014  -  Due to minimal use of the STAR (Standard Tool for Accounting Reconciliation) Microsoft Access database, the Accounting Operations & Disbursements Office has discontinued formal support of this tool. The downloads and reference documentation for the STAR tool have been removed from the Cash and Investments webpages effective November 15th.

We did not want to cause any confusion with the introduction of the university’s new planning tool, which is being referred to as the STAR Tool (Strategic Accountability and Reporting). Additional information related to the STAR planning tool is available by contacting Tina Grace in the Office of Institutional Research.

Please feel free to contact the iis.finance@jmu.edu departmental mailbox with any questions.

Finance System Unavailability

In order to complete the nightly process and have the system available for users at 6:00 am, a dedicated amount of time is needed to perform some of our processes. These are associated with performance issues related to budget checking, posting transactions, procurement module processing, system exports and back ups. After reviewing system usage of our customers, we found that the heaviest usage of the system was between 6:30 am and 6:30 pm. Therefore, the Finance System will be unavailable from 7:30pm and 10:30 pm each night in order to perform these processes. We have also adopted Sunday morning maintenance between 5am-noon. Users will have the ability to run their nVision Monthly Summary Reports, however, the monthly detail reports and GL activity reports can not be run during this time frame. To ensure the availability of the Finance System, it is recommended you check with the Information Technology Help Desk x83555 or the JMU computing alerts page located at "www.jmu.edu/computing/" if you have plans to work any given weekend or "off hours".
