What is Hyperion? BUDGET & FORECAST FISCAL YEAR GL- Chartfields INTERFACE ACTUALS BUDGET & FORECASTS It’s a budgeting tool that allows entering budget and forecast by multiple time periods (fiscal year or Monthly), and by different General Ledger Chartfields: Department, Program, Fund and Account. Hyperion interfaces directly with PeopleSoft. The Actuals are taken from PeopleSoft Financial General Ledger as well as Human Resources (for Salaries) and populated into Hyperion for closed months. Budget, 5 Month Review and 8 Month Review are taken from Hyperion and populated into PeopleSoft Financial General Ledger
PeopleSoft & Hyperion Chartfield Trees PeopleSoft Finance General Ledger is the Chartfield source of record. The hierarchy structure of the Chartfields is called a “tree”. Budgeting Services has created specific Department and Account trees that align with current budget envelopes. An example of Department tree:An example of Department tree: +ACADEMIC SUPPORT +VP ACADEMIC Provost OfficeProvost Office IRAIRA Human Rights & EquityHuman Rights & Equity AVP Academic FacultyAVP Academic Faculty +REGISTRAR’s OFFICE MOSAIC trees are loaded into HYPERION on a monthly basis. Any new department, program or account is then available in Hyperion for forecasting or budgeting. The tree structure will allow organizing the data in the Hyperion forms and reports. In Hyperion, security is provisioned by department. Values in Hyperion can ONLY be edited at the lowest level of the tree. In the example, if the form is open for the ACADEMIC SUPPORT department, all cells in the form will be read only.
POINT OF VIEW: Shows the Criteria of the Data shown on the form. The different dropdowns are: Department: Lists the departments you are entitled to. The codes are the same as in MOSAIC, prefixed by the letter D Program: Lists all the available Programs. The codes are the same as in MOSAIC, prefixed by the letter P Type of Expenditure: One-Time or On-Going. Version: Lists what version you are working on: Working, or any of the What-If versions. Fund: READ ONLY indicates the fund. Please note that there are different forms for each fund. Hyperion only has the data associated to Operating fund (20), Ancillaries Fund (30) an Externally Specifically Funded (45).
