Reports To Approvers

The Reports To Approvers are used for certain approval functions within FASIS; when a new employee is hired, the approvers default to the direct supervisor, as noted in the Reports To field on Position Data. At any time, these approvers may be changed directly through the "Reports To" page.  These approvers must be changed manually when an existing employee, post-doc, or graduate student transfers into a different department.

Note that this page does not change the official supervisor of a position -- only the approvers for the functions listed below. To change a supervisor, a Position/Appointment Form must be submitted to Payroll.

Types of Approvers

This page allows you to change the four FASIS approvers for an employee:

  • Conflict of Interest: the approver for a staff employee’s annual Conflict of Interest questionnaire
  • Performance Evaluation: used in the annual salary planning process
  • Training: approves any training requests the employee submits through FASIS Self Service
  • Leave Accural: approves an exempt staff employee’s leave time in Kronos each month
