The Campus Information Retrieval System (CIRS) is the systemwide data warehouse for Human Resource information and is a tool for securing management reports both at the campus and systemwide level.  It was developed and is maintained by CSU, Human Resources, Information Support and Analysis (HR-ISA), and operates within IBM’s Time Sharing Option (TSO3) environment on the State Controller’s Office (SCO) computer located at the Office of Technology Services' Gold Camp Campus.   


CIRS contains multiple functions for retrieving and maintaining data such as pre-generated Compendium Reports, Extract Functions, Custom Campus Files, and Online Applications.  Users who are familiar with FOCUS reporting language, can use the system’s ad hoc reporting capabilities to generate custom reports.  


CIRS is available from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday through Saturday, unless otherwise specified for an individual user.
