FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - BFS SECURITY & GL SYSTEMS
I have transferred to another department and need access in my new department right away. Do I have to delete my BFS and BAIRS access for my former department before I submit a request for my new department?
The user ID is not specific to your department, so there is no down time for an employee transferring from one department to another. When you submit a new request via SARA, choose the action for “change department – change access. This action will alert BFS Security to delete the roles for your old department and assign the roles specified in the new request. In other words, your request should specify all the roles and Processing Units that are applicable to your job in your new department.Since security for BAIRS has been automated, you must complete a request to drop your old access in BAIRS and add the new access. Please ensure that all existing access for your old department is dropped, otherwise your request will be returned for further revision. If you are unsure about your existing BAIRS access, then you may send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org(link sends e-mail) (link sends e-mail) to request this information.
