Where Can I Find My Data?

All Vetted Financial Reports Are Published in the Business Analytics Hub 

The Business Analytics Hub (BAH) is a self-service reporting solution that enables users to retrieve information on demand. It consists of a series of dashboards and reports for end users to consume the necessary information. The BAH is the primary reporting tool at UC San Diego serving as the consolidated source of reporting information throughout campus. It allows for reporting on the intersection of a number of different data sources, including Budget & Finance.

To view financial reports and analytics:

  1. Go to bah.ucsd.edu.
  2. Select Budget & Finance.
  3. Select the tab for your desired functional area or persona. (Example: Projects & Awards Panoramas)
  4. Select Run Report for the desired panorama or report tile. (Example: UCSD-DSH Project Panorama)

NOTE: Use the Company Single-Sign On to sign in, if prompted.


Financial Activity Hub (FINAH) Is Managed Separately

Some FINAH reports are also accessible through BAH, but FINAH is managed separately. For additional information about FINAH reporting, please visit https://blink.ucsd.edu/technology/bi/sources/financial-activity-hub/index.html.


Data Warehouse Holds Historic Data

Legacy data for fiscal years prior to July 1, 2020 is available via QueryLink, FinancialLink, and Cognos.

  • Department - Through VC close July 17
  • Central Offices - Through fiscal close

Do I Need to Request Access?

Content Access May Require a Certain System Role

A system message displays if a user does not have proper access to content and in most cases, access can be requested directly from that page.


Helpful Links Regarding Report Access

For information on how to request Oracle roles for report access, read Oracle & Concur standard roles and How to Request the GL Inquiry and Reporting Role before using the Oracle and Concur Role Request form.
