Service Link FAU Change Request Tool Enhancements

By Bobbi McCracken (Associate Vice Chancellor for Business & Financial Services and Controller) |
Riverside, CA –

On behalf of the Accounting Office, it is my pleasure to announce enhancements to the ServiceLink FAU Change Request Tool.  The FAU Change Request Tool provides for a standard, auditable method for departments to request and approve modifications to position funding as well as monitor the status of transactions.  Position funding is used to distribute salary and benefit expenses to designated FAUs.   The initial deployment of the FAU Change Request Tool in March 2018 focused on the most common (or simple) FAU change requests with direct uploads into UCPath nightly.  To enable a more consistent process, the following enhancements to the FAU Change Request Tool have been deployed:


  1. Complex position funding requests  can  now be submitted through the FAU Change Tool.  These requests include transactions involving multiple components of pay (MCOP) and salary capped funding situations.  Transactions will be automatically routed to your Shared Services Center for processing in UCPath.  


  1. Retroactive effective-dated rows can now be processed in the FAU Change Tool for both simple and complex transactions. 


All position funding changes should now be requested via the ServiceLink FAU Change Request Tool.  An updated User Guide reflecting the recent enhancements is available at:


Please direct questions about these changes to with the subject line “FAU Change Request Tool”.
