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.
Since April 10th, departments have been going live with RIMS on a rolling basis. Your department leader will be notified when your department will go live in the system. The RIMS training video and the manual can found on http://www.rowan.edu/hr/rims to help you learn the RIMS process.
If you wish to set up in-person guided RIMS work sessions in Glassboro or via a webinar, please contact IRT Training Services at firstname.lastname@example.org
