As part of the new employee approval process, the Human Resources Office notifies IET to confirm that the signed Application for Computer Account form has been received from the new employee.  This process creates Ticket #2.  This ticket could have multiple names.  It simply indicates that the signed form has been received.

The employee is notified via phone or e-mail that the account has been created and given the username.  The employee or their supervisor is notified to call IET for the password.

If the request is not approved by any person in the approval process, the new employee and the supervisor are notified via e-mail, and the request is cancelled.
