The site is only accessible via the FIU wired or FIU Wireless (FIU_SECUREWiFi) networks. Remote Access is available via FIU VPN (Cisco AnyConnect).

  1. No paper or wet signature is required.
  2. The approval process is now electronic.
  3. Status updates will be provided via email during each step of the process.

No previous electronic process existed. It was all manually processed which makes it harder to track the different requests and requires extensive hours of paperwork searching. This new site improves on the previous form in the following areas:

  1. Security uses FIU single sign on credentials for authentication. Also, uses https certificate based encryption.
  2. Automated Approval/Notification Workflow uses email based workflow to route requests for approval and keep requester informed of status. No longer need for an original signature or manually routing of paper back and forth.
  3. Automated Work Order Assignment and Routing After request is approved a work order is generated in Maximo and routed to Facilities IT to perform the work.

This depends on the type of key requested. See below:

The system will send email status updates when each approver has responded. You will receive an email with the approve/deny decision and the information on who made the decision in case you have any questions and would like to contact that person directly.

Also, you can check on the status of the request by visiting the MyFacilities home page under the section my pending services to see the status of the request and who is pending approval.

All faculty and staff who are registered in the HR system and have a MyAccounts username and password can request key access.
