User Authorization Access to Systems

One measure of system security is the creation of User Accounts, authorizing employees to access information technology resources. A further step is to define what each user can or cannot do with that access. When an employee joins, or leaves, the government service, Head of Departments are encouraged to actively participate in this very important process, by clearly outlining the access that each employee should have based on that person's role in the organization.

Requisition for Printing and Storage Supplies

The Department of Information Technology keeps an inventory of printing supplies and storage devices for sale to all government departments. However, we recommend that you do not requisistion excessive amounts, but rather get sufficient for what is currently needed with one spare supply.  When the last of your stock is put to use, then you can submit a requisiton to re-fill.
