TEA’s UserAdministration+ The paperless way to apply for access to TEA SE and its web applications Revised July 2006 [Click mouse to advance from slide to slide; ESCAPE to exit.]
Overview When and Why a new system?
Beginning in Spring 2006, a gradual transition to the online-only process began— one web application at a time.
The new automated process is available now for AUDIT, CIS, eGrants, ER, FIRST, FSP, GED, SPEARS, and Internal Applications.
The paper request process still applies for all other applications.
Method for Requesting TEA SE Access has been:
Applicant completes paper form, prints out and signs the request form
Executive Director/Superintendent reviews and then approves request by signing form
Form is faxed or mailed to TEA
TEA reviews, approves, and takes form to Computer Access staff for processing
Request is processed
Notice of Approval is emailed to Applicant
IMPROVED method for requesting TEA SE access
Applicant fills out and “Sends” form on-line for Executive Director/Superintendent’s authorization
Executive Director/Superintendent logs into TEA SE, reviews on-line, and clicks button to Submit form electronically to TEA
TEA staff electronically Approves access
Notification to Applicant of new access is automatic
Online record of approval is created and is accessible to the Executive Director/Superintendent

Select View decisions made from the drop-down list, and
Click the large button beside it.

You may need to assign Designees (backup Submitters) for your Organization
“ Primary Submitters” can process requests for ALL Applications within their Organization
“ Secondary Submitters” are restricted to a particular Application within the Organization
Designees NOTE: The TEA’s current position is that ALL Designees who are “Primary Submitters” should be “Board Approved” and documented via board minutes. “Secondary Submitters” may be approved via Superintendent email. Send all requests for Designees to: [email_address]
Avoid creating more than one TEA SE username for a single applicant— use Look Up User to assure person is not already a TEA SE user. It will save time if you don’t have to Revoke erroneously created duplicate requests.
Look Up Users lists all TEA SE users for the district or organization.
If an applicant already has access to an application, the Submitter needs to do NOTHING in User Administration+.
For any future change of role or revocation of access, the applicant can be looked up in User Administration+ and the request can be submitted online, just as with a new request.
When changes are made to an Applicant’s Role or access rights, the Submitter can use the text box to add comments about the activity or even to add questions for TEA:
