BFS Server Outage Affecting SAS/JMP/SPSS License Requests

January 4, 2016

In response to potential securtiy vulnerabilities the Berkeley Finance System (BFS) and other ancillary systems have been temporarily taken offline. The offlining of these systems affects the ability for Software Central to validate Chart of Account (COA) chartstrings used in some purchases of SAS, JMP and SPSS licenses. Purchases of SAS/JMP/SPSS* (*non-Funding Partner affiliates) using a COA chartstring will be delayed until the BFS and related systems are back on-line. Current estimate for return of service is Wednesday, Jan 6th. CARS and Exempt Affiliate license requests are not affected.
