Banner/DUSIS Duplicate Person Merge

Banner is Drake's Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and data authority. It is also known as Drake University Shared Information System (DUSIS). A duplicate ID merge is a permanent merge of two Banner/DUSIS ID numbers and all data associated with them. Because of the destructive nature of a merge process, the data cannot be “unmerged” once the merge process has been completed.

What to Expect

An ITS staff member will contact you with any questions or to let you know when the request has been completed. It is your responsibility to contact any person or office affected by the completed data merge.


Before the data merge process will begin, ITS needs clear, documented evidence that a duplicate person/vendor really exists. By submitting this request form, you have already thoroughly researched the following data elements:

  • SSN
  • Date of Birth
  • Address (at least one common address type)
  • Email (at least one common email type)
  • Phone number (at least one common phone type)

Note: if more than two IDs for one person/vendor need to be merged, please submit a separate merge request for each.

If there are documents to be processed which are waiting for this data merge request (such as transcripts, payroll, or vendor checks), then activate the sensitive documents option in the merge request form in the following step.

Please do NOT include any confidential information including social security numbers.
