What is Position Management?

Position Management in the BI (Cognos) Reporting tool provides schools and departments the information they need to help manage staff positions and salary budgets, including position, employee, general ledger, and budgeted salary information from FASIS.  Position Management is intended for staff positions only and does not include faculty, grad students, temporary employees or work-study students.

FASIS Administrators with Position Management access may increase or decrease the budgeted salary for staff positions in FASIS or request that a position be inactivated or reactivated through Payroll.

Security Access

To gain access to Position Management, complete the Position Management Security Authorization Form PDF Document.  

Users of position management often require access to FASIS Administration, which allows department and school personnel access to supporting position, personnel, funding, and payroll data.  For access to FASIS Administration, complete the FASIS Security Authorization Form PDF Document and attend the HRS101 FASIS Lookup Training course (registration instructions are on the form).
