- What is an attestation?
An attestation is a process in HSC-ID that makes sure certain information is correct and up-to-date.
- Why am I getting an email about it?
HSC-ID sees you as a decision maker in the attestation process and needs your input.
- How do I know what HSC-ID is requesting from me?
Please refer to the main attestation article here (link) for a list of different attestation types. These types are customized depending on what is needed from you, the approver.
- Who/What is this attestation for?
You will either see a person’s name (next to “Employee”) or the name of a group (next to “System Entitlement”). The attestation concerns that person or resource.
- How can I respond?
You can respond two ways: by clicking “Approve” or “Deny” in the email (if available), or by logging in to hscid.tamhsc.edu and clicking on “Pending Attestations”.
- Why is there a due date?
We allow 80 working hours for an approver to respond – if this time expires, the attestation is escalated to our OIT Systems team, who will then respond.
- I received a Group Owner Attestation, but I don’t know what “System Entitlement” means. Is that the drive I own?
Yes. The “System Entitlement” is the name of the group that controls access to your shared drive or subfolder.
- I’m not a group owner, but I received an email for a group. What do I do?
If you used to be an owner for that group, but are not anymore, please deny the request. If you are unfamiliar with the group, please contact our OIT Helpdesk.
- What does “Employee” mean?
For any user-related attestation (non-employees, HR liaisons, or inactive accounts), the “Employee” is the person who needs verification.
- I received an attestation, but I don’t think this should have been sent to me. What do I do?
If you think you have received an attestation in error, please contact our OIT Helpdesk at 1 (800) 799-7472.
