The University of Alaska Anchorage uses OnBase Enterprise Content Management (ECM) as the primary digital storage location for records and official University documents. The creation, maintenance as well as the deletion of these documents must comply by University Policy & Regulations set by the Board of Regents. All documents that are stored in OnBase have to be assigned to a specific doctype. The specific doctype determines access permissions and workflow of those documents. Documents can be scanned and uploaded for the purpose of reducing physical documentation held at the University. Staff members can use OnBase to find scanned versions of incoming checks and or journal vouchers.

UAA Staff members can access the OnBase system through the following ways: 

    1. OnBase Web Client - The web client can be used primarily for searching for documents. Staff members should use their UA username and password to access the OnBase Web Client interface. 
    2. OnBase Unity Client - The Unity Client can be downloaded from the OnBase Landing Page. Follow the download instructions in order to access the application on your local computer.

For more information about the OnBase system and or training and install instructions, visit the Records and Information Management site.

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) is a security standard council with the goal of managing the ongoing evolution of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. The council consists of Visa, Master card, American Express, JCB International and Discover. For organizations accepting or processing payments, these standards set the operational and technical requirements. The University of Alaska Anchorage is committed to complying by PCI standards in order to maximize data security and ensure payment card transactions are processed in compliance with the latest PCI Data Security Standard. UAA is also required to follow Administrative Policy created by the University of Alaska regarding Payment Card Industry. 

Departments are not permitted to transmit, process, or store payment card (either credit or debit card) information on University Computers, Servers, Workstations, or on other electronic media (Email, Internet, Fax Machines, CD/DVD media, or flash drives). When cardholders visit university online sites they must be redirected to a PCI compliant (University approved) third party site to transmit, process, or store the payment card information, or be processed with applications adopted and supported by the University of Alaska.

More information can be found on the University of Alaska Compliance Page.

All University employees accepting card payments must complete the PCI Training on PageUp. Employees can find the required training by going to PageUp > My community > Learning library > search "PCI" and complete the Protecting Payment Card Information training.
