System improvements and their impact on procurements

If you are an Oracle E-Business Suite user, you are already aware that the Computing Division is upgrading to a required major new release of eBS. The eBS system supports many of the accounting, procurement and other financial operations at Fermilab.

This upgrade is expected to start at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 3, and complete by 6 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 8. During this time the eBS system will be unavailable for use. Procurement will not be able to enter or award purchase orders or approve invoices.

You can be assured that Procurement will address critical and emergency procurements during this short, interim period. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Tom Serafini at
