CN - What is an LRP?

The Local Resource Person (LRP) serves as a liaison between their department and Community Network (CN). The LRP notifies CN when changes need to be made to accounts, mailboxes or file permissions. Often the LRP notifies CN when a computer needs to be setup or reloaded, but these requests can also come from anyone in the department.

CN will coordinate with the LRP on any communications or projects that impact the entire department, such as service changes or department office moves.

Note: A unit head can make any approve all of the same types of requests that an LRP does. The LRP can be a unit head or another designated person.
