A programming code deployed yesterday to fix proxy errors in MyMadison for budget revision approvals is currently preventing users from fully viewing budget revisions in Peoplesoft Finance. Currently, budget revisions can be entered, but not fully viewed after submission.

We are aware of the problem and are working with IT to resolve it as soon as possible.  Please do not enter multiple budget revisions.

Fortunately, the approval process via MyMadison is now working correctly and full revisions can be viewed there by choosing the VIEW button.

Thank you for your patience.  Please feel free to call Barbara Shifflett at 8-7207 or email at with questions or concerns.  We will inform users when the system is functioning properly.


The Budget Workflow System (BWS) is a module of Peoplesoft Finance that allows users to electronically initiate and submit budget revision e-forms and also allows those with signature authority - budget to electronically approve these entries.

The BWS stores all electronic budget revisions.  This storage allows budget revisions to be accessed and viewed at any time, eliminating the need to print and store physical copies of the revisions.


Initiator Access 

Initiator access is granted to users following the attendance of a training session (IT615) and the completion of an IS Access request for Finance - Budget Workflow System.

Once access is granted, Initiators will access the system through the Peoplesoft Finance system using their EID and password. 

Approver Access

Approver access is granted to users following the completion of an IS Access request for signature authority-budget over a department (or departments).

Once signature authority - budget is granted, Approvers will access the system through MyMadison, using their EID and password.

Initiator/Approver Access

Initiators who are also Approvers, can access the system in either location – Peoplesoft Finance or MyMadison.
