Open Forum on UGA IDs
10:30 am - 11:30 am
Tate Student Center
Enterprise Information Technology Services will host an open forum about a project to convert Social Security numbers to UGA IDs in the university's central financial, Human Resources, payroll and administrative systems. The forum will focus on why this project is important to improve information security, what to expect during the maintenance and steps after the migration. A question-and-answer session will follow.
As part of efforts to improve information security, Social Security numbers will no longer be used as an identifier in the university's central financial, administrative, payroll and human resources systems, effective Jan. 1.
Instead, those systems will use an alternate identifier, such as a UGA ID, vendor number or other ID. Approximately 50 million Social Security number records will be converted to UGA IDs as part of this project.
This transition from using Social Security numbers to UGA IDs in the financial, administrative, payroll and human resources systems will take place on Dec. 21 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
During that time, all data systems integrated with IMS or DB2 will also not be available.
To prepare the university community for this transition, EITS is hosting an open forum to discuss the project, including what to expect and steps after the migration.
