" April 1, 2022 - TDA has fully transitioned to the User Access Manager for all entities and plans to remove the FND-101 form on SquareMeals.org effective 5/1/2022.
April 1, 2022
- The User Access Manager (UAM) role within the Texas Unified Nutrition Program System (TX-UNPS) will enable a single assigned person within your entity to manage all your entity user's security. The UAM can add new users, modify existing users, and deactivate users directly in TX-UNPS.
Effective 5/1/2022, the Certification of Authority for External Users (FND-101) form will be removed from SquareMeals and no longer be available. The only method to obtain access to TX-UNPS will be through your assigned UAM. The FND-101 form will not be accepted in place of the UAM at any time.
To assign a UAM, submit the Security Authority for User Access Manager (FND-135) form to designate one employee who is not contracted or a temporary employee. The FND-135 form only applies to the UAM and not all entity users. If you are not sure whether your entity has a UAM assigned, review the UAM List at www.squaremeals.org/UAM
Additional information regarding the UAM including the UAM Handbook Guide and training videos which provides step-by-step instructions on how to update TX-UNPS along with processes, details, reminders, and the FND-135 form are available at www.squaremeals.org/UAM
