The CREW Grants Management reports were decommissioned on Friday, Dec 1 and are no longer available, with the exception of the Sponsored Invalid Code Combinations and GMAS User Security reports. As of Friday, December 2, all scheduled Grants Management reports have also been terminated and removed from CREW.

A software release to the Oracle Financial Applications, known as a "FINDINI release", is done every two to four months.

Generally, releases are performed on weekends to assure maximum availability during the business week. Most outages occur from 6 pm Friday evening-6 am Monday morning.
