Administrative Resources

PeopleSync is the primary system for most human resources and payroll transactions, replacing legacy systems at NYU—including HRIS, PASS, ePASS, xPASS, and WebAMI—with technology powered by Workday.


Administrative Access

PeopleSync administrative access is available to authorized HR, finance, and payroll employees. To gain administrative user access to PeopleSync, please contact your Human Resources Officer or Business Partner. The representative of each school or unit can request support roles that grant access to PeopleSync. Approvals are required from school or unit leadership.

Training for Support Roles

Completion of training is a prerequisite for administrative access to PeopleSync. To enroll in PeopleSync training, please contact PeopleLink.

Security Reports

On a periodic basis, a report is distributed to each unit listing all of the employees in that unit who have access to PeopleSync and identifying the level of access for each. The unit is required to carefully review, update, or terminate access as appropriate based on an employee’s current job duties. The report is to serve as an audit, however units are required to update or terminate access for any employees who change jobs or leave the University as soon as the change occurs.
