The People Database (also known as the Associate Database) allows People Database Administrators (PDAs) to create IT accounts for staff and students who do not have records in our central HR or student information systems.
The PDA for a department is normally the departmental adminstrator.
Entries are created to create new accounts or to cover a transition period (such as between short term contracts).
People who may need an account creating through the People Database include:
A number of different 'affiliations' can be created which will affect the services available and the length of time for which an account will exist.
For details, please see:
Once a PDA adds a new record to the People Database, the account will be generated automatically, and can then be registered after approximately two hours.
