Important information from the Identity Access Management Team (IAM):
*ACTION REQUIRED BY ALL STAFF*
Please Mark Your Calendars
Monday, February 27th at 5:30 PM Mountain/Standard Time, Password Authentication is changing.
You will need to logout of the following applications on all devices prior to 5:30 PM Mountain/Standard Time:
- Google Suites (email, calendar, etc.)
- Time Card
- Signature Authority
What you can expect during this time:
Google Suite (email, calendar, etc.), Time Card and Signature Authority will be unavailable.
If everything goes as planned, you will be able to log back into these applications within an hour using your CIT Password; however, if we encounter any unforeseen transition issues, log in access to these applications will be secured by Tuesday, February 28th at 8:00 AM Mountain/Standard Time.'
These applications will transition from using UCAS Passwords to CIT Passwords.
This organization-wide transition was introduced and communicated back on November 10, 2016 via All-Staff email and Staff Notes Daily. You can also find additional information on our OPEX Customer Web Site under Identity Access Management.
Information on What is Changing
CIT Password will be required to log into Google Suite (email, calendar, etc.), Time Card and Signature Authority. You will no longer use your UCAS password. If you need further assistance in reference to your CIT Password, please contact your local System’s Administrator. The list by organizational unit can be found at:
Once you log into one of these applications, such as Google email, you will no longer have to log into Time Card or Signature Authority separately. They will now be apart of Single Sign On.
This is another positive and exciting step in the direction of all business applications being a part of Single Sign On. Single Sign On will require fewer passwords for staff to remember, reduce staff frustration with entering multiple passwords over the course of a day’s work, and enable easier collaboration with partner research organizations.
We will communicate to you as the rest of the business applications transition over to Single Sign On.
