New Login Process Effective Monday, July 19th

What is the change?
The Finance Application is implementing a new Secure Access Login process. The University of Massachusetts is enhancing the application login process by leveraging University campus accounts. Your campus account (i.e. with corresponding password) can be used to access the following Enterprise applications:

  • e*mpac Finance – production system for transactions& reporting system
  • HR Direct – human resource self-service for all employees
  • Summit – university reporting; limited users
  • eCert – grants effort certification

How is this changing?
The Secure Access Login process enables users to access multiple Secure Access Enterprise Applications with one account and password. You no longer have to login to each application separately. Now you just login to one Enterprise Application to access all Secure Access Enterprise Applications within the same browser session.

Attached for your reference are the following documents:
