Click below to find out!

In Texas Unified Nutrition Program System (TX-UNPS), the designated User Access Manager (UAM) is a person at your entity who is responsible for the security management of users within your entity. The UAM has the ability to add, modify, and deactivate users, ensures users have the correct security permissions, and helps users with their password resets directly in the Texas Unified Nutrition Program System (TX-UNPS).

In Web Based Supply Chain Management (WBSCM), your entity can assign a User Admin (UA). The UA has the ability to create and maintain user accounts, manage user roles, inactivate users and run the user security report.

 In both systems, an entity may have a maximum of two UAMs/UAs.

  • Deactivation Rule

TX-UNPS will deactivate user accounts automatically if the user has not signed into TX-UNPS every 120 days. All entity users including the UAM could be affected. TDA sends reminder emails about logging into the system 3 weeks and then again a week prior to the system automatically deactivating the user account. If the UAM’s account is deactivated, a new FND-135 form must be resubmitted to establish the account again. Until the new FND-135 form is received and processed, no other updates to users will be completed.

  • Keeping User Information Updated

Continuously review your users information including the security groups assigned. Be sure their email address is accurate as important notifications such as 120-day deactivation warning, activating user accounts, password resets, and reminders are sent to the user email address on file. Keeping their information updated is extremely important and can be done through the CE Systems Logins > Details screen.
