Facilities Management moved to a cloud version of the Famis software system on Nov. 1. This system tracks and bills all of the expenses related to work provided Facilities Management (i.e. maintenance, custodial, construction, utilities etc.). The system itself is working properly, but we’re having issues with the reporting that is provided to the departments for the charges, so we have not been able to bill since moving to the new software system (with the exception of utilities, which has been billed as normal because that’s included in the phase 2 implementation of the software).
The reporting tool that we’ve been asked to use by NDUS/CTS for our reports is PowerBi and their staff are re-creating the previous billing reports, but having issues with getting the data to report properly and there are also some issues with the timeliness of the refresh process. We continue to work on this with them and hope to have it resolved within the next week or so, but since it’s been a couple of months since we’ve billed I wanted to provide an update.
When we begin our billing process, the first one will be for the Nov. 1-15 timeframe, then Nov. 16-30, etc. until we are caught up. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to Laura Thoreson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 777-3006.
