LoginID / Username and Password
To access the open provision system through the web, you need two username/loginids and passwords. First, you need your Kerberos loginid and password to access the application web page (unless you have already provided it in the same browser session). Second, an Open Provision user ID and password are needed to access the Open Provision System. This second username and password is different from your MyUCDavis and PPS-DS loginid (that use your Kerberos password), and is also different from the on-line PPS system.
If you are using the Open Provision System for the first time or do not have an Open Provision user ID, you must request access by sending email to email@example.com.
If you have forgotten your username and password, a quick self-service utility is available. The following are instructions to retrieve your username and password:
- Log into PPS Decision Support (directly at http://payweb.ucdavis.edu/ or from the MyUCDavis portal).
- You should see two links. Click on the "Open Provision UserID/Password" link. Your current username and password should then be displayed.
If you have any questions or problems with obtaining this information, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org; one of the team members will reply to your questions.
