An installation CD was made available to Local Support Providers (LSP’s) in November. During the phased implementation period, LSPs can verify the installation by performing an online Litmus test. A test environment is available now through December 23, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily for this purpose. • Check BEN Financial Advisories for the latest news about system functionality. • http://www.finance.upenn.edu/ben/benfin/advisories.shtml
