Fordham University has considered a better solution for access control for several years, as a home-grown system has become increasingly difficult to maintain. Recent IT audits have cited the need for a better system for account and account permission deprovisioning. A previous attempt to deploy a new solution was not adequately resourced and did not have the necessary breadth of support within the university for success.

Fordham decided to join the 2020 Collaboration Success Program (CSP) to develop a new role-based access control system, taking advantage of the provided training, access to experts, and peer collaboration. The four-month time frame would impose the deadlines and incentive needed for a quick win proof-of-concept, which was the first of two phases in the university’s plan.
