Report Distribution System Access Form

The Report Distribution System (RDS) is the system to distribute and archive reports for all major applications. The system distributes reports from the University’s mainframe computer via electronic format. The reports are delivered to the end-user’s electronic file cabinet (eFile) and accessed at the desktop through personal computers. Under special circumstances, email is used to inform users that a report is available or is attached. Authorized RDS users can view reports from most applications including the Financial Records System (FRS), Enrollment Management, and Budget, to mention a few. A typical user of RDS would be an account responsible person, principal investigator, department administrator or staff responsible for reviewing or assembling data of all types. For additional information, please visit the RDS home page at

Remember: When hiring or transferring, contact the RDS Administrator for assistance with moving the user eFile cabinet.
