Access to RMS

RMS access is governed by roles defined in PeopleSoft. Note that:

  • When a person changes roles within the university, they will lose existing permissions in PeopleSoft.
  • If you must delegate signing authority to someone who does not yet have appropriate access in RMS, you must first ensure that they have the correct role in PeopleSoft.

In either case, a request must be submitted through PSAR (PeopleSoft Access Request).

This process may take 72 hours or more so it should not be relied upon for last-minute submissions.

Note that as of October 4, 2019, FortiClient VPN is no longer required to log into RMS from non-UCalgary networks. Read more about logging into RMS.

RMS support is available Monday-Friday, 8:30 am - 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
