New Property Management & Accounting System

Updated September 22, 2022

Sunflower, the current Property Management and Accounting system has been replaced with a new system FMS Asset Management effective 6/27/2022. Please note that the change will not impact majority of the Berkeley Lab community. All the impacted stakeholders (Property Management and Accounting groups, Property representatives, Division Management) have been/will be trained on the new system functionality.

Background

Sunflower is Berkeley Lab’s current Property Management and Property Accounting system. From initial property items (Plant & Equipment, Computers etc.) purchase through their eventual retirement or disposal, Sunflower provides critical information related to ownership, location, cost, depreciation etc..

Sunflower was implemented over 20 years ago. It is a proprietary application with very limited functionality and flexibility, and is not able to support the growing business needs of Berkeley Lab. FMS Asset Management, a module/sub-system within the suite of PeopleSoft Financial Management System (FMS) will be a replacement system, which has enhanced functionality and better system integration.

Reporting

Property Management & Property Accounting reports are available in the LBNL BAR system.

Support

Moving forward if there are any system issues, please log an FMS Helpdesk ticket by either:
> Emailing fmshelp@lbl.gov
> Navigating to AskUS and selecting ‘OCFO Systems’
