RESOLVED: Budget Files Are Not Currently Processing Into The System

LEAs may resume uploading budget files as the system is back online. Thank you for your patience.

The ADE IT unit is working to resolve the issue. We are asking that all LEAs suspend any budget upload attempts at this time.

Once the system issue has been resolved, we will notify the LEAs affected and update this Hot Topic. All budget files that were either rejected or display a “File Pending Validation…” message will have to be re-uploaded once the system is back online.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Please know that we are working as quickly as possible to restore the budget system.

Thank you.
