NOVA Access Levels Descriptions

  • There are two levels of access: basic and advanced. Each is assigned at the local and regional share level independently. Input from your college or district may inform and determine your permission level.

  • Basic level access allows a user to report on all expenditures, and are restricted from moving funds between object codes within a project. Basic users may not increase or decrease the overall budget for a project.

  • Advanced level access allows users the same level of access as Basic level access, but provides authority to increase and decrease the overall budget for a project.
