HRMS Security Administration is performed by the HRMS Security Team at Washington Technology Solutions (WaTech).
The Role Definition Handbook provides information about how the different HRMS Roles relate to an HRMS Professional user's access to system data and transactions.
Please review the authorizations that a role contains before requesting professional access. This will ensure that the user will have the appropriate roles to perform their job.

HRMS Professional Access Request Process
To complete any of the following actions:
- Roles need to be added to a position
- Roles need to be removed from a position
- A new professional user needs to be set up in HRMS
- Professional access needs to be removed prior to an employee's transfer or separation action
Agencies must complete an HRMS Professional Access Request form and send it to the WaTech Support Center. HRMS Security will only accept these requests from an agency Security Authorizer or Security Requestor.
You do not need to send an HRMS Professional Access Request form for the following actions:
- Add MSS Leave Approver role to a Chief position – send email providing the SAP 8-digit position number
- Set up a professional user account when roles are inherited from a position - send email with employee name, employee personnel number (User ID) and, if SSO agency, the SNC entry (domain\user name) or if not SSO agency, the email address to send the user a password
