SWIFT Update January 18, 2024

Statewide Systems Maintenance

To stay up to date with our statewide systems, Minnesota Management and Budget along with the Department of Administration and Minnesota IT Services are working to upgrade all statewide systems to be supported by latest version of PeopleTools. PeopleTools provides the underlying technology for all statewide applications (PeopleSoft applications).

The anticipated launch date for this project is Tuesday, February 20, 2024. We anticipate that all statewide systems will be unavailable due to the system-wide upgrade Thursday, February 15, 2024, starting at 6 p.m., through Tuesday, February 20 at 6 a.m. Please plan around this time to minimize the interruption of critical business functions. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Important note for Buyers:Please ensure that your events are not scheduled to start or end during this time as the Supplier Portal will also be unavailable.

Impacted systems include:

  • Appropriate Maintenance Application (AMA)
  • Budget Planning and Analysis System (BPAS)
  • Capital Budget System (CBS)
  • EPM Data Warehouse
  • Fiscal Note Tracking System (FNTS)
  • Learning Management (ELM)
  • Recruiting Solutions
  • Self Service
  • SEMA4
  • SWIFT (Including Supplier Portal and Mobile Inventory)

While the updated version of the Administrative Portal and SWIFT application pages will have aesthetic changes, this upgrade will not affect how accounting and procurement processes are completed. The upgrade includes a new look and feel with simpler navigation intended to make a more efficient user experience by reducing clicks and providing multiple avenues of navigation. Overall navigation remains tile-based using navigation collections.

Stay informed with the SWIFT Update as we provide sneak peeks and anticipated changes in the coming weeks.

SWIFT Hot Topics

SWIFT Hot Topics feature Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) answered by the SWIFT Training and Help Desk team. Use these as a friendly reminder of a process or as an opportunity to learn something new!

Q. Can I run the Single Action Invoice Process (SAIP) for an invoice while another SAIP job is still processing?

A. No. You should not run bills through SAIP until the first occurrence has completed. Running multiple occurrences of SAIP, can cause the original process to fail. If SAIP fails for a particular invoice, you will likely need to run that invoice again with a new instance of SAIP. Refer to the Troubleshoot Single Action Quick Reference Guide for more information regarding issues with SAIP.
