Below is a guide that applies to designating a proxy for approving Electronic Personnel Action Forms (EPAFs). If you are an EPAF approver, you must assign a colleague as your back-up to ensure that there are no delays in the processing of EPAFs when you are out of the office. Before you can designate a proxy, the individual must have completed any required training and submitted a completed security form, which provides access to the Banner EPAF system.

For more information about EPAFs, visit the Information for EPAF Users web page.


  • Log into myUSF
  • Click on the EMPLOYEE button in the Self-Service box, which enters you into Banner
  • Under the Employee tab, select EPAFs
  • Then select EPAF Proxy Records

From the Approval Level drop-down menu, make the appropriate selection for which you wish to designate a Proxy Approver and click Go.


From the Name drop-down menu, select the individual who you wish to designate as your Proxy Approver. The designated proxy will have access to Approve, Acknowledge, or Return EPAFs at the approval level chosen in step 2.


Check the "Add" box next to the individual's name, and click Save.
