New Long Distance Authorization Pin# Codes

Beginning September 1, 2011, CNS will replace existing employee 7 digit LD authorization PIN# codes with the employees 8-digit employee ID number (listed at the top of the employee pay statement ) as their new long distance code. At that time, employees who were previously authorized to make long distance calls will begin using their employee ID number to place long distance calls. Additionally, in September, employees will be able to view if they are approved for long distance access by viewing the Employee Self Service tab in the myUK portal. The long distance code change is part of the effort to improve operational efficiency and cost savings for the university.

Between August 1, 2011 – August 31, 2011, authorized employees will continue to use their 7 digit PIN.

Between August 1, 2011-August 31, 2011, requests to add or delete long distance PIN codes can be ordered by departmental managers as usual at

On September 1, 2011, authorized employees will begin to use their 8 digit employee ID number for long distance calling.

When placing international phone calls, calling cards will be needed. Departments can request international calling cards for individual employees by completing the form available at

New Bio-Statistical Support Information

The Applied Statistics Lab (ASL) is now available to enhance statistical support for both faculty and students. The ASL will provide researchers with a centralized location to seek advice for planning studies and implementing analysis. One of the advantages of centralized support is that requests requiring less statistical sophistication may be handled by a junior RA and more complicated requests may be triaged to a faculty member with specific expertise.

It is likely that Catherine Starnes (now a senior RA) will continue to work on projects for CHS as she did last year. Heather Bush, Ph.D., will continue her supervision of CHS projects and will ensure that the statistical needs of the college are met.

Effective immediately, please send all bio-statistical requests directly to Candace Brancato.
