Direct Access User Recertification: Follow the procedures in the Direct Access User Roles and Functions Self-Service User Guide to submit your request to retain access to other than self-service functions.
The ability to manage user roles within DA has been implemented. Functional roles are being created which will make it easier for end users to request roles. For example, instead of having to know which specific roles you need, you will select a “Functional Role”. Examples: CG SPO Technician, CG SPO Auditor, CG CGIS Investigator.
Functional roles are approved based on the position you are filling. For example, if you are a SPO Auditor, you would request CG SPO Auditor. When PPC receives your request, we verify that you are in a SPO Auditor position and ensure any other criteria is met, and if met, approves the request. If you are not in that position, or the PAL lists your position incorrectly, your request will be denied. For example, you are a SPO Auditor but the PAL lists you as an Admin Yeoman. All positions are verified through the PAL. Do not select multiple functional roles that are related, for example, do NOT select CG SPO Technician and CG SPO Auditor.
Personnel approving DA users roles must be properly designated in accordance with reference (a), specifically authorizing this authority. Designation memo must be retained at the unit. PPC will request this memo from the unit for any audits and/or investigations. Reference (b) provides additional information on DA user access.
