In order to obtain access to FRS, you must first establish a CMS Mainframe
Account. The account application may be found at: http://uits.accounts.uconn.edu/forms/mfadminform.html
Questions may be directed to UITS-Help center 860-486-4357.
Once you have a CMS mainframe account, you should submit a "Request
for Access to FRS" form, with the required approvals, to the Finance
Systems Office, U-2074. To get this form, click HERE
or call the FRS System Administration Team at 486-3778 or 486-5887.
The Finance Systems Office will communicate to the Computer Center
instructions required to link your CMS mainframe account to FRS and provide
FOCUS FRS database access (if requested by you).
Finance Systems will create an FRS operator number and password for
you. You will be sent this information, along with a basic instruction manual.
More detailed instructions are provide in this web site's FRS manual or
in hard copy requested from the Accounting Department (486-2937).
The FRS operator password assigned to you is for your use only.
You should not share this password with anyone. FRS does not require you
to periodically change your password, but it is a good idea to do this routinely. You can do this using
screen PWC in FRS.
Please note: This is not your CMS password! You only use this password
if you have multiple operator numbers under the same CMS_ID or if you
share a CMS_ID with another user, but have separate operator numbers.
If you do not know what an operator number is, chances are that you are
set up with automatic logon and this password change utility DOES NOT
apply to you.
Your CMS Login ID password must be changed every 30 days. The system
will give you a few days notice of the upcoming expiration of your current
password. Once it has expired, you will be advised when you log onto the
mainframe via CMS or when you access FRS directly through the CICS region.
You can also change your password HERE.
