SOX compliance

Deadline for managers nears

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

The Postal Service is reminding managers of the upcoming May 23 deadline for reviewing 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 contractor access, managers should:

• Verify that users are properly assigned to them and that their role is correct.

• Ensure that access to systems and applications is restricted only to what users require to perform their current role and nothing more.

To avoid disrupting contractors’ productivity, managers should complete reviews before 11:59 p.m. Central Time on May 23.
