Financials 9.2 and Portal Tools Upgrade

Information Technology began with an upgrade assessment to validate our current installation, finalize a level-of-effort for the upgrade, and confirm resources required in November 2013. After doing our assessment, we engaged Oracle Managed Services on November 26th  to support upgrading our PeopleSoft Financials modules (Accounts Payable, Asset Management, Accounts Receivables, Billing, eProcurement, Financials Global, General Ledger, Grants Management, Purchasing, eSettlement) from v9.1 to v9.2.
