 ** Need to Change Organization (Department) account ownership

  • If you are leaving your current department or changing roles within Rice, remember to shift the ownership of your any Organization (department) accounts to a new account owner. This can be done by submitting a Help Desk ticket. 
  • If you find yourself in the position of taking over the ownership of an Organization (department) account, you can request ownership:
    • Submit a Help Desk ticket indicating an account ownership change - include the account name, previous owner (if known), and department
    • If the previous owner is unknown, the department administrator (approver) will need to verify transfer of ownership.
