PY20 Quarter 1 Authorized Positions
A final upload to SPARQ of the PY20 Quarter 1 authorized positions is scheduled for early November. Grantees may make changes to the allocation of their authorized positions, if needed, by October 28, 2020. Any changes made after that date will not be included in the update and will not be reflected in the PY20 Quarter 1 QPRs. If there are any sub-grantees listed in the Authorized Positions utility which will not be active during PY20, please submit a ticket to Zendesk and let us know the month and year during which that sub-grantee was last active. We will mark that sub-grantee as retired, so the records are not included in the pool from which future data validation samples are drawn.
 
PY18 Quarter 2 QPR's
It has come to our attention that field B10c (Median Starting Wage in Placements) and measure E6 (Common Measures Median Earnings) are not displaying correctly.  This will be corrected as soon as possible
                 
Resetting Passwords

A security enhancement has been made to the SPARQ login page.  Previously, a user who forgot the password could request that the password be sent via e-mail.  Since it is not secure to send current passwords via e-mail, that function has been replaced.  The new function now allows a user to reset the password.  The following message is displayed at the bottom of the login screen:

 

To reset your password, enter your user ID then click here, and you will be sent an e-mail containing your temporary login information.

 

When the user logs in with the temporary password, it will be necessary to change the password immediately.  This new function can be used by a user who has forgotten the password, or by a user who has accidentally locked the account by entering an incorrect password three times.  Users with expired accounts will not be able to use this reset function.  Instead, they will receive the following message:

 

You cannot reset your password because your password is expired. Please contact your administrator



 For questions about your user ID or password, please contact your grantee administrator.
