The NetID Identity Management System relies on data in Budget/Payroll/Personnel (BPP) employee records to automate creation, maintenance, locking and removal of NetID accounts for employees. While this works well for maintaining employee account information, issues can arise when an employee is in transition due to delays in employee record updates.
The Identity Agent Program supports departmental use of NetID accounts. The program relies on selected staff, designated by authorized departmental officials, to act as trusted authorities for NetIDs. Upon completion of all training requirements, identity agents will be given access to the NetID system and enabled to perform functions specific to their role.
The Identity Agent roles have been developed to align with the two components of an account.
The HR Identity Agent role was launched at the HR Liaison Network Fall meeting on September 30, 2014. Interested HR personnel are now able to pursue designation as an HR Identity Agent.
Work has begun to codify the IT Identity Agent role and develop tools.
