The Statewide HR SFT Account Request form requires manager approval. Each institution must first designate at least two primary contacts with authority to approve SFT accounts for individuals who need access to their institution’s SWHR reports.
Approvers must be managers within the institution’s HR and/or Payroll offices.
Send the names and contact information for institution approvers to the OFM Help Desk (email@example.com) using “SWHR Approvers” in the email Subject line.
Upon completion of forms, approving authorities must e-mail request and non-disclosure forms to the OFM Help Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org) using “SWHR Access” in the email Subject line.
The OFM SWHR system analyst will verify the approval and initiate creation of an OFMHR SFT account for the employee. Account credentials will be provided to the employee along with basic instructions for accessing the reports.
To ensure access after the cut over, users must submit the required forms by February 16, 2021.
When is this maintenance happening?
OFM is planning to cut over all users who have submitted the required forms to the secure SFT accounts on February 19, 2021.
Why is this maintenance happening?
Current practice requires accessing reports using two different processes. OFM is streamlining the process for user ease of access and ease of management for OFM. All future access will be through a state Secure File Transfer (SFT) account.
The current process: Access to most SWHR validation and status reports is currently through the CIMAI web application. Reports that contain confidential data are accessed via the state’s SFT server.
The new process: Access to SWHR validation and status reports will be exclusively through the state’s SFT server at https://sft.wa.gov.
