    Please plan for the USAccess service and role holder portals to be unavailable for most of the weeend for Release 10.2. This release launches the Temporary Card pilot with the U.S. Department of Treasury. While Treasury is the only agency who can issue temporary cards during this pilot, there are some areas (Applicant Status Report, Reports Portal) where role holders from all agencies will see references to temporary cards.

Agency Leads should respond to this email by February 28. The MSO appreciates your assistance in this effort.

    Please remember that the USAccess program and the U.S.Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires us to accept two identity documents for applicant enrollment, one Primary and one Secondary. Please see “List of Acceptable Forms of Identification Guide” on FedIDCard.gov for details. A second document from the Primary forms of identification list can be used as a Secondary proof of identity. However, two forms of identification from the Secondary forms of identification list are not approved for applicant enrollment

    Based on suggestions gleaned from our Refresher Training Questionnaire for our Activators and Registrars, we have created a new distribution list specifically for Refresher Training attendees. Via this distribution list, we will be sending out training reminders leading up to each training. We will also send out the agenda prior to the training. Please note that this distribution list is solely to communicate Refresher Training information, and will not be used in lieu of TRACKS to communicate system alerts and the like.

    Starting this week, we will no longer be posting copies of the Blue Top newsletters to the Agency Lead Portal or FedIDCard.gov. We now have an online repository where you will be able to find past and current articles. We will continue to send you the newsletters via email on the second and fourth Thursday of each month but this will also allow us to post updates as needed.
