DHS – When I was with DHS HQ, we had a URL Exemption Request Form (or similarly titled .pdf) which I was able to submit to the OCIO and have GovLoop “opened up” to either my desktop IP address or my email, I don’t know which way they white-listed it. I had to submit a reason (e.g., it’s how I get my business DONE!) and have my supervisor sign-off on it.
Each person had to do this for their own individualized access. They did not have many professional networking sites, such as LinkedIn as well, open for very long.
I would like to ask folks, if they have a similar process at their Department, Agency, Office; if they wouldn’t mind attaching the form which is used within your workplace. I’m sorry that I do not have the DHS form any longer, but I will ask a colleague to get one for us.
