Following the update from ITS regarding network performance improvements we are investigating whether there are further issues with the Finance System. If you experience any issues please email the Finance Service desk ( and provide as much useful information as you can to help us to diagnose the root cause. In particular please let us know what you were doing, what time the issue arose and what browser you were using (e.g. internet explorer etc). If possible please attach a screenshot of your Windows Task Manager – Network tab. We will investigate all reported performance issues and work with ITS to identify and implement improvements.
