Managing access to Oracle Financials

The University uses Oracle Financials to manage financial activity. Granting and managing appropriate access is therefore crucial to the safety and security of the University's financial information and the integrity of its financial controls.

Oracle Financials is not linked to other systems (e.g. CoreHR) and so proactive and regular access management is needed. 

All staff must meet the requirements of the University's Financial Regulations and Regulations Relating to the Use of Information Technology Facilities.

Note: Once provided, access to Oracle Financials may enable the individual to see sensitive and personal data. The individual must therefore be aware of the requirements for confidentiality in handling University information. The University complies with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and individuals with access to Oracle Financials must ensure they do not contravene these. Financial or personal information must never be divulged to parties who do not need this in the course of ordinary University business.

This process and associated financial controls have been written in support of the Financial Regulations.
