Users of the Administrative Systems have access to sets of web pages, forms, functions, data and reports that are defined by specific "responsibilities" within the system. Some Responsibilities are automatically set up in the Administrative Systems for individuals when they are added to the Oracle HR system as a New Hire, Rehire or Trainee. Other responsibilities must be set up with the Access Control Form (ACF).
