Privilege Management

Privilege Management is a web application that combines People, Privileges and Resources (cost centers, home departments, etc) to create Privilege Assignments, which are permissions that control access & authority within numerous Financial, HR, Procurement and other web applications or business processes throughout Vanderbilt.

Centralized and Decentralized Administrators for Vanderbilt University and VUMC also use Privilege Management to control access to a variety of Business Objects universes. Additionally, anyone with one or more active privileges can use Privilege Management to view their own privileges, the privileges of others using Person Search, or use Resource Search to answer questions such as, "who can sign this form?" or "who can grant privileges on this Cost Center /Home Dept?"
