This has been asked recently:

Question:

What should be the value for 'Author' for the TFS Check in prompt set? 
Does it need to be the same as the Service Account used to access TFS?

Answer:

According to our document, the author value isIdentifies the author of the specified or implied the pending changes so that one user can check in changes on behalf of another user. 
Requires the CheckinOther permission. 

So it doesn't have to be the same as the service account used to access TFS.
