Colorado Department of Education Identity Management

Since November 2008, CDE has been working on a new Identity Management process that will simplify and streamline the user login process for CDE data systems and enhance security to student-level data. The first phase of the project has involved completing analysis to support a Single Sign-on / Delegated Administration model. This includes drastically reducing the manual effort currently required by districts and CDE resources to assign user ids and passwords by automating the user registration, approval, and password reset processes, and providing districts and administrative units with the ability to maintain users via a Delegated Administration model.

Note: The new Delegated Administration provisioning system (Access Management) is available as of March 2. The final revised version of the new IDM system was published July 11. The legacy system will also remain available through this transition period until August 2.
