Finance/Procurement Access

Access to University of Colorado's financial and procurement systems is managed by the Controller's Office. Prior to being granted access or user permissions within each system, you will be required to complete the appropriate training and request access through the Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) System. Access to the financial and procurement systems may be granted to UCCS employees and its affiliates.

Three Steps to Requesting Access

1) Determine if you need access to either the financial and/or procurement systems.

2) Take online and/or in-person training courses.

3) Submit role request(s) through OIM for approval.


Note: Access to the HR-Human Capital Management (HCM) and Central Information Warehouse (CIW) is not handled through the Controller's Office. If you would like to request access to either of those systems, please review the request instructions provided by the University Information Systems team.


Steps to Request Access to Financial and/or Procurement Systems

PeopleSoft Financials - The General Ledger (GL) for the University in which journal entries can be created and queried. System is also used to identify ChartField Information (such as Speedtypes, Orgs, Etc.)

Cognos Reporting - Financial reporting system that provides the ability to run and view financial reports (aka m-Fin reports)
