Request access to iHawk

A department or administrative user of iHawk is normally a department administrator, KU faculty member or member of the Shared Service Center.  This user will very often initiate a request process in iHawk.  Furthermore this department user does not have to have hiring authority at KU as many E-forms will have the ability for a second-approver to review, sign off on information, or submit correct information.
