Getting Edit Access in DRS System

The DRS system is the electronic submission and maintenace process for the department role structures that replaces the paper-based PPS and OPTRS Departmental Organizational Structure forms.

A DRS System Presentation can be accessed on the PPS website to provide an overview of the system. (Presentation runs best in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers.)

This guide walks an FIS User through the process of updating permissions to include Edit status for PPS and/or OPTRS structures. Additional guides on the PPS website provide instruction on creating new structures and updating structures in the DRS System.

Before You Begin
  • Confirm employee is an FIS User
  • If employee is not an FIS User, enter new user document in KFS to become FIS User
Step 1 - Navigate to KFS

Access the Kuali Financial System (KFS).

Enter your campus login ID and passphrase (or password) as instructed at the Central Authentication Service (CAS) screen.

Step 2 - Select Web Access Document

On the Main Menu, in the Chart of Accounts/Workflow section, click on Web Access.

Web Access Doc

If entering a new user for the role, enter their user ID in the Role Member field (click on the lookup icon if you are unsure of their user ID).

If inactivating a user for the role,  enter the desired date of inactivation in the Active To Date for that user.  (Use CTRL-F keys on your keyboard to quickly locate the user on the document).

Click on the Submit button at the bottom of the document. The document will automatically route for approval by the appropriate personnel as it did with the KFS User document in KFS.

It is recommended you check that your permissions have been approved and updated no sooner than one business day after request for Edit access has been sent. If errors are found restart process at Step 1, or contact the PPS Help Desk at (530) 752-7750 for assistance.

Note: You will need to submit a document per role requested. If the user will be updating both PPS and OPTRS structures they will need to be added on separate documents for roles as PPS Editor and OPTRS Editor.
