Penn State will be using a new financial system for the 2020-21 fiscal year. This new system, SIMBA, will be integrated with iLab. After SIMBA goes live in iLab (June 29th), you will need to reassign funds to your lab members in iLab - Assigning Funds to Members.  
If you do not see your funds in iLab after June 29th, please contact your financial assistant to ensure that you are listed as the owner of the fund in SIMBA.
