In addition to PeoplesSoft, there are a few other reporting tools available. The preferred reporting system is Cognos, which provides a selection of pre-formated reports. Units may also chose to use PSLite, Access, or Hyperion for ad hoc reporting. To gain access to PeopleSoft, please submit this form. Access to Cognos is automatically granted to all employees with a fiscal role. PSLite, Access and Hyperion require access to the Central Information Warehouse (CIW).
