The CRC is hosting a 2-hour PeopleSoft Security Audit Workshop for district staff responsible for determining “who has access to what” in PeopleSoft and how to audit user's roles and access in Finance and HCM.

Audience: Please register the staff member(s) who determine access for Finance and HCM – ideally a team of 2-4 people.
