Duplicate ID Management

What is it?

A "Duplicate ID" is the the duplication of the same record in Banner tables and can cause serious problems. The PIDM (Person IDentification Master) is the internally assigned system number that connects all the data that is associated with a Banner ID Number. A Banner ID number record can represent student, employee, vendor, etc.

Duplicate ID's can occur for many reasons, including:

  • failure to perform a complete search

  • error keying in data in INB (Internet Native Banner)

  • error keying in data over the web (Self-Service Banner)

  • feeds to Banner from governmental agencies, testing agencies, etc.

Who can use it?

Duplicate ID's cannot legally be purged and requires a planned and coordinated effort among the functional areas which are data stewards of the Banner modules of Finance, Student, Financial Aid, Alumni, and Human Resources. Key Banner module users must be involved on an ongoing basis to resolve duplicate ID entries before further use of the duplicate record(s) are created in Banner.
