August Top 10 Financial Management Report Runners!

Congratulations to the August Top 10 Cal Answers Financial Management Report (FMR) runners! These report runners ran 21% of all  FMR reports run in August.

Financial Management Reporting provides access to the General Ledger actuals data updated nightly from the Berkeley Financial System (BFS) but in Financial Management Report signage, similar to CalPlanning data.

These report runners are leading the way in our campus migration from BAIRS to Cal Answers Finance. Here is what they have to say about running reports with Cal Answers:

  • Stop using BAIRS and move to Cal Answers.
  • Learning how to include and exclude columns on those dashboards that allow for it really opened my eyes to the power of Cal Answers
  • This is a very user-friendly system.
  • I have prepared reports in Cal Answers without any problems, it is so easy.

  • Can you say drill down? I am reborn a Drill Sergeant!

We appreciate their efforts to embrace the change and move to the future of financial reporting at Berkeley!

We are officially retiring BAIRS on Saturday, December 22, 2018.  You can read more about the project timeline on the Cal Answers Financials website @
