ePAF Resources

An ePAF is an Electronic Personnel Action Form; an online form, originated by a department to submit requests to create or update employee job records.  ePAFs replace paper forms in processes such as hiring a student employee, job changes, employment status changes, and more. These electronic requests are moved through a predefined approval queue until it is ultimately applied to the appropriate BANNER screen(s).

Each ePAF action has pre-assigned approval levels, which represent electronic signatures approving the transaction. There are three different types of ePAF users:

  • Originators – users who begin an ePAF action
  • Approvers – users who must approve an ePAF action
  • Proxies – users who are designated by an Approver with specific authority to approve actions on the Approver’s behalf.”
