The Access Request System processes the authorisation of access to Systems and Services (provided under the Exeter Service Catalogue, previously known as SSD). The system enables SSD staff to comply with the Access Control Policy, ensuring the systems they require access to are formally recorded and an audit trail exists. The system produces an extract of users with access to systems containing Personal Confidential Data (PCD) to support the annual Information Governance Toolkit return.
