What’s New at the Division of Finance

New State Data Warehouse Cognos
May is "Transition Month"

Throughout the month of May you will continue to have access to the current State Data Warehouse FINET reports – reaching them as you normally due today. Additionally, during this transition month, you will also have access to all of the same reports within the newly upgraded Cognos system.

During our “transition month” - both the current State Data Warehouse Cognos/FINET Reports and the NEW State Data Warehouse Cognos will be accessible through your browser, and via https://finance.utah.gov/data-warehouse/

Please note: During the month of May, as we transition from current to the upgraded system, some upgraded Cognos reports may be temporarily unavailable. All missing reports will have been updated and made available in June.

If you experience problems and would like to report the issue to us - please use the links below.
