BENEFITS OF THE AUTOMATING STUDENT/STAFF ONBOARDING & OFFBOARDING (IDENTITY MANAGEMENT) GRANT
- Easily onboard and offboard employees: Create and maintain user attributes, such as usernames, roles, and profiles, and automatically assign access permissions and user accounts based on predefined roles and flexible entitlement rules.
- Reduce User Onboarding Costs: Onboarding users manually can be a tedious task which might consume a few minutes to hours, hampering IT productivity to a large extent and adding to operational costs. Automation reduces the costs of manual onboarding — which requires precious man hours and potential overtime — and it ensures admins can instead dedicate their time to more pressing technical tasks that require their expertise, like cloud transformation or working on other projects.
- Improve Institutional Security: Institutions can achieve just-in-time deprovisioning to ensure that users are removed in real-time from the repository thereby bolstering security & compliance. This will help Institutions achieve seamless orchestrated user offboarding thereby preventing possible security cracks/lapses arising due to manual deprovisioning.
WHO CAN APPLY & WHAT IS THE QUALIFICATION CRITERIA?
- Accredited Higher Education institutions are eligible to apply.
- Institutions are eligible to apply for multiple grants. Separate applications are required for each grant pursued.
- Applicants are required to demonstrate institutional purpose in the form of a “letter of intent” signed by Dean/President or member of campus leadership team. The letter should indicate the challenges the solution aims to solve and why the grant would be helpful to the institution.
Please note: If your institution has previously received a grant award for other Campus Consortium grants, your campus is eligible to apply for this grant.
