Identity and Location Management System


This campus policy establishes the requirement to maintain a system of record for all identity and location data for UCSF Faculty, Students, Staff and Affiliates as required by the University of California Office of the President policy IS-11, Identity and Access Management.


The combination of specific personal data that creates a distinctive system identification associated with each individual, for example social security number, student ID number, etc. The nature and reliability of the identification process supports a level of assurance that an assigned system identity is unique. Generally, this identity verification takes place within the Office of Human Resources, Student Services, or the department that first encounters the individual and creates their record within the institutional system(s) of record thus establishing an ‘identity.’


A representative sample of UCSF identifiers that includes UCSF Employee ID Number, UCSF SF ID, UC Net ID, AD ID (Username) and UCSF Email Address. Please note: these are only a representative sample of identifiers.


Physical address, building name, building number, floor, suite, room, office or cubicle number with regards to a place or position that can be used during the act of finding where something or someone is — the act of locating something or someone.

Identity and Location Management is comprised of those activities we engage in to ensure that everyone who is affiliated with UCSF and uses its resources is known (or identifiable) to the University. UCSF maintains an identity system, Individual Identifier (IID), and location system, Campus Locator System (CLS). Individuals employed by or affiliated with the University of California, San Francisco must have their identity and location data recorded in this IID/CLS or a replacement system.
