The Postal Service is reminding managers of upcoming deadlines for reviewing employee and contractor access to the organization’s applications and systems.
The periodic reviews are required under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) accounting law.
To review employee and contractor access, managers should:
• Verify users are correctly assigned to them, considering both current assignments and official Form 50 role.
• Ensure user access rights to systems and applications are restricted to only what is required to perform their current role.
• To avoid disrupting employees’ and contractors’ productivity, managers should complete quarterly contractor reviews by Aug. 25 at 11:59 p.m. Central Time.
The twice-yearly employee reviews must completed by Sept. 9 at 11:59 p.m. Central Time.
Employees and contractors who are not validated by the deadline dates will lose access to the Postal Service’s online resources.
The Corporate Information Security Office will also send a message to all USPS managers reminding them to complete contractor and employee reviews using eAccess and ARIS.
