How is 'Functional Areas' permission granted to the Business Tools Support role?

I'm associated with the Business Tools Support role in JA; this role has been granted the following permissions in the Administration area:

  • Impersonate
  • Customers
  • Portfolios
  • Programs

I need access to the 'Functional Areas' permission as well; where is that permission granted/administered and by whom?

thank you!!!
