Departmental Authorization Function (DAF) is related to the policy that governs who is allowed to approve what type of transactions in Columbia's financial systems (i.e. ARC, FinSys/FFE, etc.). To apply for transaction approval ability, please fill out the Financial Systems Security Application. For People@Columbia (PAC) system access and approval ability, see the PAC Security Access Form. For more information about PAC, navigate to the People@Columbia (PAC) Resources page.
To apply for any financial system, you need to have a Columbia UNI. Click here for more info.
Each School/Unit has designated DAF Administrators who oversee access and authority – click here for a complete list of departments and the associated DAF Administrator group.
