The System User Role document will route to FMS for approval. Please allow 2-3 business days for your KFS access to be granted.
Please note that KFS Users must have an active Duo Token in order operate within the system.
Critical Data in the KFS
In fall 2015, access to view Vendor documents and the notes and attachments section of PCDO documents were globally restricted due to violations of University Policy DM-01: Management of Institutional Data. All KFS users should review how Indiana University classifies the data that it maintains. This is available through the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology's Classification of Institutional Data.
Any violations of IU's data management policies will result in the following corrective actions:
- A notification of the incident will be emailed to the policy offender and account and RC fiscal officer, with a copy to the campus administrator, vice chancellor, and the university controller; and
- Incidents will be tabulated by Procurement Services and Financial Management Services jointly for monthly reporting to the Committee of Data Stewards.
For more information, please reference the Memorandum on KFS Critical Data Security Violations.
