ePAF Access and Training

Before departments can begin using the ePAF system, security must be granted. To obtain ePAF security, departments and colleges must submit a HR Security Request eform. Departments and colleges can refer to the instructions for submitting, Initiating a Security Request Document, and/or approving the HR Security request eform, Approving a Security Request Document.

When identifying Originators and Approvers, please ensure that your department has both an Originator and Approver back-up in the event that an Approver or Originator is out of the office. This helps to streamline the ePAF process, and ensures that ePAFs are created and approved in a timely manner.

User Access Types

ePAF Originator:

The Originator will use the ePAF forms to initiate various HR actions. Originator access is designated by the VP/Dean of each college or department.

ePAF Director/Chair Approver (optional):

The Director/Chair Approver is an optional role; however, colleges or departments may assign a Director/Chair Approver role, if desired.

VP/Dean Approvers:

The VP/Dean Approver is a required role in the ePAF Workflow.

Workflow Approvers:

After ePAFs receive approval from the VP/Deans and Director/Chairs, the forms go through the appropriate workflow Approvers. Workflow Approvers are Regional Campus, ORC Compliance, Graduate Studies, Academic Affairs, HR – Compensation, HR – NRA, and HR – Records.
