Applying for Access to the AMS System

Secur ID cards have been discontinued effective June 2015 and are replaced with the e-Token.

You will need an e-Token to pass through the security wall that protects the AMS system. e-Token purchasing will be processed at the department level by designated e-Token administrators. For more information on the e-Token initiative, please go directly to the e-Token site.

To purchase an e-Token, contact your department access control rep or department e-Token administrator.

  • FIS—Financial Information System
  • HRIS—Human Resource Information System
  • RIS—Research Information System
  • CP—Capital Projects
  • F&S—Facilities and Services

To apply for access to any of these modules, applicants should contact their section Business Officer or Access Control Rep for guidance. Department reps or contact persons should ensure applicants’ forms are filled out correctly and signed appropriately before they are submitted.
