Revised CUNYfirst Procurement User Access Request form


This is a required form to establish and/or change security access to the CUNYfirst "Financials Supply Chain" pillar, which grants system users the capability to purchase Tax Levy or Non-Tax Levy funded goods or services.  

The completed form must be requested by the employee's manager and submitted to IT Security in NA 1/301.
