Introduction to FORS and FARS

FORS/FARS was developed by IST to provide Financial Services with the ability to attach signing authority and mailing information for each FOP or FA combination

FYMFORS (Fund, Orgn Responsibility System) is the Banner form used to query employee responsibilities pertaining to Fund, Organization, and Program (FOP) combinations. Generally, you would query this form to view employee responsibilities for all of your Operating and Grant FOP combinations.

FYMFARS (Fund, Account Responsibility System) is the Banner form used to query employee responsibilities for Balance Sheet Fund and Account (FA) combinations.

These forms use Banner functionality to store the following information for each FOP or FA combination (for further information, see Responsibility Codes):

  • Primary Signing Authority (PS)
  • Alternate Signing Authority (AS)
  • Payroll Mail Responsibility (PM)
  • Financial Services Responsibility (FS)
  • Extra Copy Recipients for Mailing (XC)

The forms provide Financial Services with the ability to query and print reports by Fund, by Org, by Employee Number, or by any combination of the above.

External units can query and print reports on who has Signing Authority by Fund/Org or by employee number.
