The SMART upgrade to Image 36 and PeopleTools 8.58 will be taking place this weekend.

The system will be unavailable to users from 5 PM Friday May 7th until 6 AM Tuesday May 11th.

As a reminder, nightly batch will begin at 5:30 PM on Friday May 7th. Please coordinate with your agency IT staff to make sure inbound interface files are submitted by 5 PM on Friday May 7th. SMART will be unavailable to agencies on Monday May 10th.

Also, in order to comply with State of Kansas Information Technology Executive Council (ITEC) IT Security Standards, the system password controls are being modified. Two of the more noticeable changes to the password controls will be:

  • Increased minimum length
  • Increased password history

Users will encounter these new controls the first time their password expires. This change will take place in SMART, SHARP and Employee Self-Service.
