Accounts Receivable Toolkit
What is Accounts Receivable?
The Accounts Receivable module in the Integrated System is used to create and maintain customer records and to create transactions including Invoices. Invoices are printed, mailed, and collected by the Revenue and Collections division in Central Finance.
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) use the Accounts Receivable module to create and maintain customer records for Grantors; create, print, and mail invoices to Grantors; and collect and apply payments from Grantors.
The University seeks to strike a balance between open access to data and data protection by assigning Integrated System (IS) and Student Information System (SIS) Responsibilities to employees. The Responsibilities allow access to specific categories of data and the assignment process complies with the University of Virginia Administrative Data Access Policy.
Requests for Integrated System responsibilities are made by you or your supervisor and submitted via the Electronic Self-Help Access Request Process (ESHARP). To begin the IS access process, go to ESHARP. In most cases, additional responsibilities are automatically assigned with a responsibility.

Additional Responsibilities: AR Billing Specialists and AR Billing Specialist Remote will also automatically be assigned AR Viewer and ODS Specialist (Discoverer) access. AR Viewers are automatically assigned ODS Specialist (Discoverer) access.
Note: For viewer roles, training is not required but is highly recommended.
Six Month Rule: If you have taken a required class for a specific responsibility, but have not completed the training nor have had the responsibility activated within six months of taking the class, you will be required to retake the class. Also, if you are assigned a responsibility that you previously had, which was deactivated for longer than 6 months, you will be required to retake the course(s) before it is reactivated.
