SPA Process User’s Guide – Chapter 3 – Navigation

Logging On to the SPA System

To log onto the SPA system, each agency must have:

  • A connection to the Comptroller’s office mainframe,
  • Security access into the Comptroller’s office mainframe and
  • Security access to the SPA system.

Each SPA user must have a user ID, SPA profile and SPA Application Security Profile assigned by the agency’s security coordinator, which together provide security access to the Comptroller’s office mainframe.

Procedure

  1. Enter USAS on the Texas Map log-on screen or on an agency’s log-on screen.
