On August 20, the Financial Systems Solutions (FSS) Applications web pagethat many of you use to access finance and reporting applicationswill be automatically redirected to a new—but very similar—Harvard University IT (HUIT) financial systems applicationpage at huit.harvard.edu/apps/finance.
Many across the University rely on this portal page, and every effort will be made to redirect visitors automatically and ensure a smooth transition.At your convenience, please update any links and bookmarks you may have to the new URL:https://huit.harvard.edu/apps/finance.
This consolidation is the first step of a larger effort to make it easier to find and access widely-used University applications, resources, and knowledge online. As part of this effort, financial systems online content will be integrated into Harvard University IT, and the FSS website will be eventually retired.
Thank you to those who provided early feedback on the applications page and voiced the continuing need to have a simple, single page with links to the applications they use most. We welcome additional feedback at any time. For questions or concerns, please submit a ticket through IT Help and it will be routed to the appropriate service team for response.
