Password Reset Requests
If your agency has their own password reset procedures, please follow it accordingly. The information provided below is for agencies that allow password resets via other means.
If your agency is now using Office 365 password reset, you will need to use these Office 365 password set-up instructions only once. Once it's set up, you can follow these instructions to reset your password through Office 365. If you cannot change your password yourself, please follow your agency’s policies and procedures regarding Office 365-related issues.
Virtual Private Network Access and Forms
OCIO provides virtual private network (VPN) access to SilverNet users from anywhere in the world. The VPN service is available to all state employees or contracted employees at no additional cost. Changes to a fully established, active VPN account do not require a new form to be filled out. The employee’s supervisor or the primary contractor’s sponsor may email the Service Desk with details of the requested change.
