Faculty Administrative Resource Management "FARM"
FARM is a new data-management system, developed by MedIT. It provides a simple, secure and single-point-of-access to information that exists in several independent databases, including: PeopleSoft; Telephone Accounting Management Information System (TAMIS); Bear Tracks; Faculty Annual Report System; Central Information System (CIS); and numerous departmental listings and databases. FARM compiles, then shares, the data from those stand-alone systems. It receives daily automatic updates, and can integrate additional information.
Effective July 18, 2012, all academic faculty members and support staff will be able to login and use FARM to perform various administrative, networking and collaboration tasks. FARM can be accessed via the secure website https://farm.med.ualberta.ca by using your CCID and password. You will be prompted to validate your personal information at your first FARM login.

To ensure your information is correct, we would suggest you sign on, review your personal profile and make a note of any changes that are required. We would also welcome you to upload your photo – we are a large faculty and putting faces to names is helpful in building relationships. Make sure you check out the searchable “research interests” feature.
