Banner Frequently Asked Questions 


How Access is Terminated

A weekly report identifies terminated employees and their Banner and related accounts are closed.  Security officers are notified of closures and those with job changes so access can be reviewed and updated.

Employees who change jobs at UO need to submit a new Banner Access Request to Information Services.  The hiring department must also resubmit a new FIS/HRIS User Profile Form to the BAO for FIS or HRIS access, or the BANNER Student System Access Request to the Registrar's if SIS access is needed.

Each year SIS, HRIS, FIS and Accounts Receivable access is audited by the Registrar and the BAO.  A memo is sent to each department and access is removed unless the memo is returned indicating that access is still required.
