July 2017 - EPAF, RIMS, Quick Reference Guides and Training Tips

IRT Training Services has been busy training two HR sponsored applications this summer – Rowan Identity Management System (RIMS) and Electronic Personnel Action Forms (EPAF).

The Rowan Identity Management System (RIMS) is a web-based application designed to collect hierarchical data from the top down and facilitates management by clarifying relationships, defining roles, levels of authority, and supervisory or reporting lines. Supervisors will be responsible to collect, update and maintain their employee data in RIMS for efficient and accurate organization and reporting.

In an effort to reduce paper forms and automate the processing for Student Work Study assignments, the office of Human Resources has developed a Student Work Study EPAF process (Electronic Personnel Action Forms) through BANNER Self-Service.   Instead of completing a paper request form, student employee supervisors who are responsible for the hiring and processing of student workers will enter the information directly into BANNER Self-Service. 

For more information about these applications including videos, a manual, and quick reference guides see our web page ( for links to the HR RIMS and EPAF sites and EPAF class registrations. Since RIMS data entry is a more individualized, please email to set up a remote work session if you need help.    

Are you just too busy? Not enough time to look though our detailed user manuals or videos? Just want the facts? Training Services has created two page Quick Reference Guides that you can print (two sided), laminate or hang on your wall. Currently training guides are available for Banner Requisitions, RIMS and EPAF. Still to come over the summer months are Banner Receiving, Banner Budgets, Cognos, Confluence, Web Time Entry and more. Check them out on our web page where you will also find links to videos and user manuals for the newest applications – Banner 9, RIMS, Cascade and EPAF.

We have also gathered all of our Training Tips from over the past few years and centralized the link on our website – you’ll find some helpful tips like – How do I add my photo to my Outlook email
