An important initiative that will simplify the tracking and controlling of budgets in ConnectCarolina will happen in time for the new fiscal year. This initiative will improve system performance, reduce complexity, and reduce the amount of data the system needs to manage.

If you only use the system for making purchases, such as placing ePro orders, you may notice that budget checking runs a little more quickly. If you use ConnectCarolina for more involved transactions and budgeting, you may notice a few more changes. You’ll also notice a new way to choose State, F&A, or Trust when you’re running reports in InfoPorte.
