Districts use PPS to access these child notifications and referrals. Districts also use PPS to provide the required Indicator 12 information for each child referred by Birth to 3. As part of the PPS application, districts need to identify a PPS Security Coordinator.Nancy will first explain the roles and responsibilities associated with the PPS Security Coordinator. Next she will discuss the steps to follow in designating a PPS Security Coordinator.Then Nancy will talk about the process to create a user ID and password using the Wisconsin Web Access Management System, also referred to as WAMS.Finally, Nancy will discuss the steps to follow when assigning and terminating district users with PPS access using the Wisconsin Integrated Security Application, also referred to as WISA.

WAMS is the Wisconsin Web Access Management System. WAMS allows authorized individuals to access internet applications across state agencies using one user ID and password.You must have a WAMS user ID and password to be the PPS Security Coordinator.
