PAMIS eCAF



SAA Information


UCR NetID

Everyone using PAMIS eCAF must have a UCR Net ID and password.

Employee Net IDs can be found using the web-based employee search at Employee Search.

UCR Faculty and Staff can be assigned Net IDs by their department Enterprise Directory Administrator.

Enterprise Access Control System (EACS)

EACS provides UCR System Access Administrators (SAAs) a single web tool to efficiently grant users access to several UCR Enterprise systems, including PAMIS eCAF.

The following PAMIS eCAF roles are available:

  • C&G Analyst
  • PI
  • Chair

Note, the PAMIS eCAF Dean role is assigned by UCR’s Institutional SAA.
To view the Dean role designation select the View accountability structure by APPLICATION option from the EACS main menu.

Guidelines for establishing PAMIS eCAF roles

eCAF routing and email notification is determined by the org. level designation.  For example, if multiple chair roles are assigned (for chair and vice-chair users) each user will receive all email notifications and eCAFs will be available to each user.

SAAs and C&G Analysts should discuss this issue with users assigned Chair roles to ensure messages are acted upon accordingly.

A particular SAA may have multiple accountability structures assigned (e.g., NPPS).  In this situation the SAA should establish a chair role for each department code (eg., D01135, D01136, D01137, etc.) and map their PI roles accordingly.

Please contact the Office of Research and Economic Development if your department or unit does not have a designated chair (e.g,  School of Education).

PI Eligibility

The Enterprise Access Control System (EACS) requires that users selected for the PI role meet the PI Eligibility requirements. To accomplish this, EACS selects the individual's title code(s) and appointment percentage(s) from the Academic Personnel database and compares them against the approved title codes and percentages defined by the Office of Research and Economic Development. Some title codes are automatically eligible for the PI role and others are eligible only if the individual's appointment percentage is 50% or greater.

Title code / appointment percentage mismatchIf EACS does NOT find a match between the individual's title code(s) / appointment percentage(s) and the eligible title codes / appointment percentages defined by the Office of Research and Economic Development, the following message will be displayed:

How should the SAA respond to this message? There are three possibilities:

  1. If the individual is not a faculty member, an exceptional PI Eligibility request must be submitted. To request an exception, please click the "Request PI Eligibility" button and proceed by completing the required Bio Form and submitting the request via EACS. Please note that once the exceptional PI Eligibility request is submitted, the PI may immediately begin using the PAMIS eCAF system by virtue of having the "PI Pending" role.
  2. If the individual is a faculty member, but may not meet the title code requirements. Please view the title codes and appointment percentages deemed eligible by the Office of Research and Economic Development. Please contact the Office of Research and Economic Development  feedback with any questions related to the eligible title codes and percentages.
  3. If the individual is a faculty member, and already possesses one of the eligible title codes defined by the Office of Research and Economic Development, you may wish to confirm the individual's title code information exists in the Academic Personnel database. Please contact Katina Napper (katinan@ucr.edu) with any questions related to the Academic Personnel database.
  4. If the individual is a Emeritus Faculty member, the following information should be reviewed.
    • Title codes 1132 (Professor Emeritus (W/O Sal) and 3249 (____-Senate-Emeritus) are listed in eCAF as PI eligible codes.
    • If the individual's title code is not 1132 or 3249, please use EACS to add the role of PI and when prompted to complete the PI Eligibility form, upload the individual's CV instead.  Once the CV is received by Office of Research and Economic Development the approval process can be completed.
    • Note! An Emeritus PI can be approved as a PI in eCAF for an indefinite period of time, provided that the pre-emeritus position was a senate faculty position, which would entitle the PI to remain part of the academic senate now that the PI is an emeritus.
