DACS is a paperless solution that interacts with a number of subsystems such as Travel Concur, Printing Services, Budget Management, and Property Management. DACS replaces the need for campus signature cards and moves us along with electronic signatures for providing Delegation of Authority (DOA).
The system runs on Peoplesoft and inherits employee demographics as well as a chart of account information from existing solutions for HR and Finance. Access to the system with various roles is managed through the campus identity management system, avoiding duplicate data entry and minimizing potential data divergence within systems.
Anyone with a Coyote ID can submit a DOA request through the DACS system. While Financial Services will continue to provide guidance and oversight, the ongoing support for maintaining the DACS system in accordance with established approval processes, resides with the various campus departments.
In order to promote greater economy and efficiency, the legislature has delegated authority concerning certain activities, such as purchasing and contracting, and real and personal property to the California State University (CSU). The CSU Board of Trustees further delegates such authority to campus presidents and/or designees pursuant to Executive Order 1000. Accountability for the management of the property, assets, financial and human resources of the University ultimately rests with the President who expects those with signature authority to safeguard University resources by establishing and maintaining sound business controls that deter and detect any potential misuse of resources.
What information is included in DACS?
DACS is comprised of tables that contain employee and financial information associated with delegation of authority:

Each department is responsible to:
