In order to simplify compliance with policies and procedures related to the management of person identity information under Penn State Administrative Policy AD80, Penn State Identity Services (IdS) and the Enterprise Project Management Office (EPMO) have coordinated an initiative to establish the Person Biographical (Bio) Record.
The Person Bio Record is a shared set of data elements related to person identity whose definitions are collectively understood and adhered to, created and maintained under shared policies and procedures, resulting in identity information that can be managed across Penn State information systems with a high degree of consistency, confidence in fidelity of values, and data integrity.
This page includes documentation of the policies and procedures related to the Penn State Person Bio Record.
Person Bio Record
The following documents relate to the Person Bio Record in its entirety:
- Summary (high-level summary of the Person Bio Record)
- Comprehensive (includes decisions and procedures for all of the data elements in the Person Bio Record in a single document)
Data Element Decision and Procedure Documents
The following documents are the decision and procedure documents related to specific data elements that are part of the Penn State Person Bio Record.
Core Data Elements
Person Bio Record Core Data Elements are those for which values must be requested at the time of person record creation.
- Date of Birth
- Email Address
- Tax Identification Number
Non-Core Data Elements
Non-Core Data Elements will become part of a Person Bio Record when collected but will not be required (or not be required to be requested) for the creation of a Person Bio Record. In other words, Non-Core Data Elements will compose the remainder of a Person Bio Record (in addition to the Core Data Elements).
