Oracle Financials: December 2022 month end closure

20 Dec 2022

A reminder that all Oracle Financials users must be logged out by 12noon on Wednesday, 21 December

Oracle Financials (including iProcurement) will close at 12noon on Wednesday, 21 December to allow for month end processing work to begin. This means that:

  • If you are logged in to Oracle Financials, you need to save any work and log off by 12noon (this includes iProcurement
  • DO NOT attempt to log back in to any area of Oracle Financials before 8am on Tuesday, 3 January 2023 as the system will be unsupported during this closure**
  • DO NOT respond to or action any workflow emails (related to iProcurement etc)
  • Excel4Apps (E4A) reporting is unaffected by this close

Failure to adhere to the above can cause numerous issues on the system and unnecessary time spent chasing users to log out of the system. 

If you have any questions or concerns please contact us by emailing
