    The MSO is in the middle of its annual distribution list cleanup. Agency Leads should have received an email from the MSO in the last month including an attachment listing all agency representatives on the USAccess distribution lists and all agency ALP accounts. Agency Leads, please review the lists and provide any necessary changes to the MSO.

    If you have received a Mobile Credentialing Unit (MCU) as part of of the USAccess transition process, please remember to register your new equipment on Site Manager. There are step-by-step instructions in the MCU Setup Guide for how to add a site in Site Manager, as well as how to add end dates to your current LCS workstations. Please reach out to your Agency Lead or the gsamso@gsa.gov inbox if you have any questions.

    Please note, beginning June 13, 2019, the Blue Top newsletter distribution list will be cleaned of all non-government email addresses that aren’t approved by an Agency Lead. This change is being implemented to improve security, ensure the legitimacy of recipients, and remove email bots that are currently subscribed. If you are currently subscribed to the Blue Top newsletter with a federal email addresses (e.g., @gsa.gov; @usda.gov; @mail.mil; etc.), no action is required and you will continue to receive the newsletter each month.

    USAccess Release 15 is scheduled for this weekend, February 16-18, after being moved from January. An updated draft release notice was posted on the Agency Lead Portal and emailed to Agency Leads on Jan. 28. The MSO was granted a short extension on its Authority to Operate (ATO) to get through the shutdown. The release contains elements that mitigate vulnerabilities, which are critical to GSA granting USAccess a new ATO.

    USAccess Release 15.1 will include a new scheduling system that replaces the existing GSA Online Scheduling System in use today. This is the system that Registrars, Activators and applicants use to create and manage appointments at USAccess credentialing centers, which applicants access through the “Schedule” tool on fedidcard.gov.

    In January and February, the MSO worked through approximately 2,500 cards that were returned during the shutdown due to offices being closed. The normal weekly average for returned cards is approximately 5-10. As of Thursday, Feb. 7, all returned cards that were received during the shutdown were processed and sent out to their original ship-to sites. We appreciate agencies’ patience as we worked through this process. If you have questions about returned cards, please contact hspd12@gsa.gov.

    Customer Agencies placing new equipment orders (FCU, MCU, LA, Printer) need to have complete and correct shipment information at the time of submission. Updates to shipment addresses are not typically possible after the MSO sends the orders to vendors. The MSO encourages agencies to ensure they have the correct shipment information prior to submitting orders, even if that means delaying submission by a few days.
