Abstract: The FNS Computer System Access Request Form, FNS-674, is designed for use in all situations where access to an FNS computer system is required, where current access is required to be modified, or where access is no longer required and must be deleted.

The SISSO will over see completion of the FNS-674 forms and forward completed forms to the DRISSO.

The DRISSOs act on behalf of FNS Headquarters Information Systems Security Office to ensure that Regional, Field Office, and Compliance Office users comply with FNS handbook security policies developed for the regional environment. DRISSOs will forward completed FNS-674 forms to the FNS Headquarters Information Systems Security Office.

The Office of Management and Budget Circular No A-130, Appendix III (A) (3) Revised, dated February 8, 1996, requires that the information be collected.
