Access to any OSU Data System is approved and granted by the appropriate OSU record custodian of the system, or their designated representative, as per Section 103 of the OSU Information Sercurity Manual. The following requirements have been set by the OSU records custodians documented in the Acceptable Use of University Information Policy.
- OSU faculty and staff (all systems) and OSU temporary staff (FIS and SIS systems only) are granted targeted access to the Data Systems that are required for the performance of their job duties.
- OSU temporary staff and graduate research assistants seeking HRIS data access: the hiring Department/Unit must obtain written pre-approval for access from the Assistant Vice President, Office of Human Resources prior to hiring for the position. Access is granted only when unusual circumstances exist, as departments are expected to provide back-up assistance from regular staff on duties requiring HRIS Banner, Data Warehouse, or Nolij access. Access will be considered for a limited time to returning OSU retirees if duties on the temporary assignment are similar to those performed prior to retirement.
- Student employees and Non-OSU employees may be granted limited access with approval from the appropriate OSU record custodian; their accounts will be activated with a specific expiration date. This group of employees is ineligible for any HRIS data access.
Enabling and Terminating Access
Enterprise Computing Services (ECS) will enable access based on the signed request form for the OSU Banner Information Systems, including Banner, Data Warehouse and Nolij. Access to these systems will be terminated based on (a) separation from the university, (b) change in job duties recorded in the HRIS system, or (c) instructions from Department/Unit heads. ECS will affirm access with Department/Unit heads as still appropriate to meet business needs every 6 months.
Access to the CORE reporting system is automatically granted and terminated based on job function as documented in the HRIS system. The Business Intellegence Center may modify access based on a manual review of job duties.
