Approval Authorization/AU or Level Access

An AU or Level Access Form should be completed, at minimum, by the Principal Investigator (PI) of a related accounting unit at the time the new accounting unit is established.  The completed form should be returned to SPA via email to GRNTCON@luc.edu

If the PI wishes to designate others as authorized users to have the ability to approve or initiate salary and non-salary expenses for their AU, then they may add these individuals to the form.  This authorization will grant access that includes approvals for check requisitions, expense reimbursements, payroll updates and changes, and purchase requisitions.

Department administrators, business managers, etc. can request a global authorization by checking the Global Authority check box, which allows for the individual to be authorized to approve everything that falls under that department (level).
