NAMS Upgraded to Release 3.0
All NASA HQ Employees
July 11, 2008
On July 10, 2008, the Agency released a new version of the NASA Account Management System (NAMS). This newest version of NAMS has built in checks that will prevent requests from being submitted if the IT Security Training Date and/or the Subscriber Agreement Date fields are not automatically populated as part of the badging process and completion of IT Security Training.
IT Security Training Date
For NAMS to receive a valid training date, employees must take the required IT Security Training in SATERN. New hires, whose SATERN accounts have not yet been set up and who need immediateaccess to any of the NAMS applications,may obtain training in the User Resource Center located in Room CX42. Without timely completion of the IT Security Training, employees could experience delays getting account requests approved.
Subscriber Agreement Date
If the Subscriber Agreement field is not automatically populated, NAMS 3.0 will present a copy of the Subscriber Agreement for the user to read and accept. The Subscriber Agreement is a statement concerning Federal law and appropriate use of computer accounts, computer resources, and the consequences if violated. It is an Agency requirement that all persons requesting logical access to a NASA IT resource accept the Subscribers Agreement.
