Archival Data Request Service (ADRS)

As previously communicated, access to the legacy mainframe system was disabled on Saturday, March 30, 2019. In order to ensure that all day-to-day processes run smoothly, including year-end closing, we created a new Archival Data Request Service (ADRS), which provides access to archival data hosted in the mainframe, upon request. Our goal is to ensure that access to archival data is completed as quickly and securely as possible.

How to Request Reports with Archival Data:

If you require access to archival data in the mainframe, please fill out the ADRS report request form* in UService (the University's IT service management system). Once the request is approved by the managing department(s) (employee data - HR, financial data - Controller's Office), you will receive the requested report.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the ADRS team at: adrs@miami.edu. For technical support, please contact the UMIT Service Desk at: (305) 284-6565 or help@miami.edu.
