SOX deadline

Managers must review access to USPS systems

Under federal law, postal managers must perform periodic reviews of employee and contractor access to applications.

The Postal Service is reminding managers of an upcoming deadline 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.

Managers must perform the reviews using both eAccess and ARIS. The USPS ServiceNow website has instructions for performing both kinds of reviews.

 To review employee and contractor access, managers should:

• Verify that users are properly assigned to them and that their occupation/position title is correct. This data should be consistent with the employee’s PS Form 50, Notification of Personnel Action.

• Ensure that 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 both quarterly contractor and twice-yearly employee reviews before 11:59 p.m. Central Time on March 29.
