SIMBA Resources

Quick Links to SIMBA Resources

  • OPP's Cost Centers with IBIS legacy budget numbers 
  • OPP's Internal Orders with IBIS legacy budget numbers 
  • SIMBA GL accounts with IBIS legacy object codes (GURU)
    • Instructions: Click the Global Expand button in the lower right-hand corner of the screen and use CTRL-F to search the list for old object codes to find the corresponding GL Account(s). PLEASE NOTE: that an old object code may have multiple GL Accounts (and vice versa). The first result of the search may not be your best choice. Conduct a thorough search. You can also search (CTRL+F) for specific words such as "cellular" or "landscape" to find the appropriate GL Account(s), again with the caveat that there may be multiple results.

  • OPP's SIMBA FN18 Approvers List 
    • OPP's Approvers & Proxies template (see Kristin Sykes email dated July 9, 2020 for more information on the review/approval process and how to use the Approvers & Proxies template)
  • Shop OnLion Delivery Address (This is an unprotected copy that you can filter and sort for your particular needs, e.g. buildings within a particular Custodial District)
