In order to facilitate the processes which begin the closing of FY20 and the opening of FY21 within the PRISM System, it will be necessary to take the system offline according to the schedule below.

From: 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 30, 2020
To: 6:00 a.m., Wednesday, July 1, 2020

Please exit the system prior to 5:30 p.m. this evening and do not attempt to re-enter until after 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 1, 2020. Your access will be terminated without notice at 5:30 p.m. and all processes (printing, faxing, reporting, data entry, etc.) must be completed and saved prior to that time. Any data not saved or processes that are not completed by 5:30 p.m. Tuesday will be lost.


As of July 1, 2020, if you are entering GL transactions for the JUN-20 period, you MUST change the default period from JUL-20 to JUN-20.

Should you have any questions, please contact the Technology Help Desk at 412-624-HELP (4357) .

Additionally, real-time information is available on posted transactions via the General Ledger application. The Account Analysis report and the Account Inquiry functions within the application can be very useful in monitoring accounts for month end close.
