Employees - Requesting Access to Campus

While the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg remains closed to the public, the campus is in operation for the 2020-2021 academic year.

With a continued commitment to campus safety, University buildings remain restricted to authorized Pitt community members during the spring term – this includes buildings on the Pitt-Greensburg campus.

Employees can request building access through the Authority to Operate (ATO) system with approval granted by Dr. Gregerson or his designated departmental approver.

Instructors who are teaching in the spring, listed in PeopleSoft and approved by Pitt-Greensburg will be entered into ATO. Please confirm you will require access to campus and designated buildings on the Pitt-Greensburg campus so we can confirm your approval.

ATO 2.0, developed by Pitt IT in collaboration with Business and Operations, the Office of the Provost and the Office of Human Resources provides simplified access request and approval processes and a streamlined reporting dashboard. This new ATO 2.0 system will take the place of emailing Dr. Gregerson to request access to campus and buildings. You will enter your request in the Authority to Operate (ATO) system system and NOT by emailing Dr. Gregerson.

A new alert feature will soft launch beginning January 25 and rollout fully in early February, preventing Pitt community members who are in non-conformance with university protocols from entering buildings at all campuses. After swiping/tapping a Pitt ID at entrances with card readers, an audible alert will activate due to the following non-conformance types, denying entry.

Employees

  1. Employee without prior building access authorization through the ATO system
    1. Action: Employee must request access through the ATO system, allowing 24 hours for approval before returning for access.
      1. Dr. Gregerson or designated departmental approver is responsible for authorizing access requests in ATO system.
    2. Escalation:
      1. After first and second violations, the employee, supervisor and RC head/director of administration (DOA) will receive a building alert email notification.
      2. After third violation, Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) will be added to the email distribution and card access will be removed for all campus facilities. To appeal, the Dr. Gregerson is required to contact EH&S.
  2. Employee who is in quarantine or isolation
    1. Action: Employee must complete their quarantine or isolation period prior to accessing campus buildings. Access will be reinstated within 24 hours following completion of the quarantine or isolation period.
    2. Escalation:
      1. The employee, supervisor, RC head/DOA, and EH&S will receive an immediate notification, should an employee in quarantine or isolation attempt to enter a campus building.
      2. EH&S and the RC head (Dr. Gregerson) will act to remove the individual from the building immediately, if still present, and access to all campus facilities will be suspended.

Note: Names of Pitt community members in quarantine and isolation remain confidential and will not be denoted in ATO platform, identified in building safety alert feature or visible to building personnel. 

Activity Area Plans

Pitt established University-wide Standards and Guidelines and recommendations for all schools, units, and departments operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because each of these areas will have their own unique needs and strategies for implementation of these requirements and recommendations, schools, units and departments are preparing Activity Area Plans to govern their operations.
