Annual Oracle Upgrade Notice

Each fall, maintenance is done to keep Yale’s Payroll applications up-to-date and to maintain reliable service of the Oracle Financial, Human Resources, Procurement and Reporting applications - including the Data Warehouse and Brio Portal - that provide the underpinnings of many of Yale’s administrative systems.

This year, the upgrade is scheduled to take place from Friday, Oct 12 5:00 pm – Oct 14.   Full system access will be available the morning of Monday October 15 at 8 am. This means that the above-mentioned applications will not be available during this period. At this time, we expect this upgrade to have minimal impact to the end user community. As more information becomes available, we will communicate any changes in the applications.  Details should be available by September 15.

A website has been established to contain details of the impact on each application as a result of the upgrade.  In the meantime, If you have any questions or concerns about this year’s upgrade, please send an email to
