February 15, 2008


This is to let you know that, as planned, the Project Office System is now offline to Project Proposers. Those Projects that were released for review by 12:00 Noon today are now being reviewed and should be completed by next Friday, February 22, 2008.

If you have a personnel action that is time sensitive or that must be processed in time to make the February payroll, please use manual procedures (i.e. paper forms) until the BearQuest System is live on March 3rd. You do not need to submit on paper, however, if your project was released for review in Project Office before noon today. Some examples of personnel actions that will be accepted on paper through February are:

  • Faculty HIRE

  • Faculty Overload Pay

  • Separation

  • Staff Temporary Request

  • Supplemental Pay


The EMS system will need to be temporarily down this coming Monday morning until Noon, February 18 to install some changes in preparation for the BearQuest system.
