Electronic Document Distribution System (eDDS)

Electronic Document Distribution System (eDDS)

eDDS is a tool that enables users to access and view reports through the Web. Reports can be viewed with a Web browser, Adobe Acrobat, text editor, or a word processor and can be saved, edited, or printed locally. Benefits include lower paper costs, less paper use, reduction in manual distribution of reports, and quicker distribution.

If you’ve already obtained access, you may login to eDDS V10.


Obtaining Access

In order to obtain access to eDDS, you must contact your Access and Security Representative (ASR) and indicate which reports you need access to.

At that point:

  • The ASR requests access from the appropriate Report Steward(s) for approval. If a user needs access to reports that fall under multiple domains, then the ASR will need to get approval from all the appropriate Report Stewards (preferably via email).
  • Once the approvals are received, the ASR can then request for the user to be given access to eDDS from the AIS Security Office. Attach the Report Steward’s approval with the request. Please also include the following user information in the request:
    • First name
    • Middle initial
    • Last name
    • Penn State Access Account ID
    • Penn State email address
    • Phone number
    • A list of reports for which access is being requested
  • The ASR and the user will be notified when access is granted. If the user is new, then instructions will be provided via e-mail describing how they obtain an initial eDDS password from AIS.

ITS/TNS Online Billing

To access ITS/TNS Online Billing Statements please contact your AIS Access and Security Representative (ASR). After your ASR receives approval from your Financial Officer, the ASR can direct your request to TNS Online Billing.

The request should specify the requestor’s name, e-mail address, and AIS Mainframe ID. Next, the request should also specify the entire Administrative Area or specific Budgets (in IBIS format e.g. 0102345 UP). Finally, the request should specify whether the access should be for the Campus Only statements, the University Park Only statements, or Both the Campus and UP statements.

Upon request approval, the request will be forwarded to AIS Support. The requestor and the ASR will then be notified when the changes have been implemented.
