3 News Item posted 2 nd March 2015 Consistent Financial Reporting (CFR) 2014/2015 The statutory changes required by DfE to enable a school to generate and submit their CFR return for 2014/2015 will be included in the FMS Spring release. These changes are relatively small with a number of validation changes which have been published as Resource No The current published release date is Friday 27th March 2015 but we are aware that this date falls in the Easter holidays in some Local Authorities. In addition, a number of Local Authorities have indicated that they wish schools to complete and submit their CFR during early April. We are reviewing the release date of FMS Spring 2015 release ONLY, to see whether we could release it a few days earlier before the end of Spring term. In terms of the interfaces between SIMS Autumn 2014 and FMS Spring 2015, we can assure you that these will continue to function normally. If you have any comments regarding the FMS Spring 2015 release date - please contact me via other questions around the process of the release please contact Paul Featherstone Mandie Kirk FMS Product Manager
