On February 9, 2015, the National Finance Center (NFC) will begin enforcing its Inactive Accounts
policy for Web application accounts. This will mirror the Inactive Accounts process in place for
Mainframe application accounts.
NFC recently made modifications to its mainframe security data structure to accommodate the storage of email
addresses for all users. Storing the email address will allow us to email users to notify them when their accounts
have not been logged into, and may be in danger of being disabled or deleted.
NFC updated Service Level Agreements (SLA) for Fiscal Year 2014 to address security access requests.
This resulted in new performance metrics based on not only the number of UserIDs listed on the request,
but also the complexity of the request.
This notification is to inform agency security officers of changes that were made to the Special
Payments Processing System (SPPS) for processing Manual Payments and Adjustments by the
National Finance Center (NFC).
