USG Announcement:  iStrategy Status Update

Apr 21, 2015, 09:06 am - Becky Smith

iStrategy has been unavailable since the PeopleSoft 9.2 application upgrade due to retrofits in iStrategy needed to accommodate changes in PeopleSoft Financials for the 9.2 application upgrade.  Examples include changes to budget reference and budget period fields.  Additionally, the iStrategy technical infrastructure has been upgraded.  These infrastructure changes were completed within the last couple of days.  ITS is finishing up data validation testing and plans to have the iStrategy application back up and running on Wednesday, 4/22.

The USG -  ITS Department will send out another status update by Wednesday, 4/22.  We will advise you of that update as soon as we receive it.

Thank you for your patience.  We do apologize for the inconvenience this delay may have caused. 


PeopleSoft Upgrade

The PeopleSoft Financials system, including the automated Expense Reimbursement and Online Requisition modules, was recently taken offline in late March by the USG IT Services for the purpose of completing a major version upgrade.

We are pleased to tell you that the full system is now back online.

Following the PeopleSoft upgrade, all campus users should have the same access as they had prior to the upgrade.

Should you encounter any problems in using the PeopleSoft system, or not have the necessary access, please contact Maurena Grant in Financial Accounting at 344-3388 or by email at

We appreciate your patience during the upgrade.

Thank you.
