Frequently Asked Questions

Departmental Billing Date Changes

Why is the cutoff date for departmental billing account changes moving?

The current cutoff date is directly before the bill cycle run date. The department bill cycle run will be 6-7 business days before the end of the month.

Access

I am one of the multiple people in my department who interact with the tool. Why do I need my own account for access? Wouldn't it be more efficient to use shared accounts?

The use of shared accounts for logging into services is discouraged and university policy outlined in Executive Memorandum 16 forbids the use of shared passwords. With our inCommon infrastructure, one of our obligations is that every account needs to be traceable back to a specific individual. Using individual accounts ensures that we're in compliance with university policy and the Research & Education Federation Security Incident Response Trust Framework for Federated Identity (SIRTFI).

Reviewing ITS billing Services' bills for my department has been added as a new responsibility for me. What do I need to do to gain access?

The first step is to submit a completed ITS Billing Services Departmental User request form. Once submitted, you will be set up as an authorized user in the system and granted access to the appropriate department's bill.
