Frequently Asked Questions - American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
MMRS Security is experiencing a high volume of requests due to the recent changes in ACE. We are processing the requests in the order received as quickly as we can. Please be advised, it is not mandatory for you log into ACE at this time - only the next time you need to log into ACE. We appreciate your patience.
Reminder-Changes to ACE – Posted 04/20/2017
Remember - Effective May 1, 2017, your MAGIC user ID and password will become your ACE user ID and password. If you do not have a MAGIC user ID and password but will need one to log into ACE, you may contact the MMRS call center at your convenience any time after April 30 for assistance.
NOTE: If you were hired after June 30, 2014, your ACE user ID will have a “30” after your initials, i.e. AB30111111
If you have previously logged into MAGIC but don’t remember your password, you may reset it by clicking on the word link on the MAGIC log-on screen and answering the security questions. The new password will be your MAGIC and ACE password effective May 1, 2017.
MAGIC SECURITY CONTACTS – Please make sure that each of the users in your agency has an email address on their account in Identity Management (IDM). This address will be required for MMRS to process the password reset for ACE or MAGIC. Also, beginning May 1, the email address for all users should also be added to SPAHRS in the field labeled “Email” on the first screen of the Demograph as soon as it is enabled; you will be notified when that occurs.
For further assistance, you may email email@example.com or call Security at MMRS Call Center at 601-359-1343, Option 1, Sub-option 4.
Email Field Coming Soon to the Demograph Record in SPAHRS- Posted 03/30/2017
In the near future you will notice a new, required field on the Demograph record; it is for the employee’s work email address if there is one. This information will be carried over into MAGIC overnight and will be beneficial when the MAGIC ID and password are set up for the individual. Beginning May 1, 2017, your ACE ID and password will be changed to match your MAGIC ID and password.
If there is no work email address for the employee, you may enter an alternate email address or “Not Available” in the field. Please note that certain SPAHRS processes requiring demograph updates will require the Email field to be completed if it is blank.
TPX Converts to VSwitch Sunday, March 12, 2017
TPX will be converted to VSwitch on Sunday, March 12, 2017. VSwitch will be the new session manager going forward. Logging into VSwitch is the same as logging into TPX – by typing your user ID and password in the fields provided. The biggest difference you will see is that the command line is at the top of the screen now. Also, each of the sessions has a number listed beside it. To open a session you will type, on the command line, either the name of the session (e.g., SPAHRS) or the number listed beside that session. To close the session, type logoff on the command line.
Update from MSPB - FLSA Overtime Rule Injunction - Posted 11/29/2016
Several states, including Mississippi through the Office of the Governor, filed suit against the U.S. Department of Labor to challenge the overtime rule change scheduled to go into effect on December 1, 2016. As a result of the lawsuit, the U.S. District Court on November 22nd issued a preliminary injunction which has stopped the rule from going into effect at this time. Whether the rule change may have to be implemented at a later date will depend upon the final ruling in the lawsuit.
If you have already made changes to the exempt status of your employees in preparation to comply with the scheduled December 1st implementation, MSPB staff will be happy to assist you in processing necessary corrections to those changes. Requested corrections must be in accordance with current, applicable laws and regulations. If [MSPB] can be of assistance to your agency, please contact your assigned HCCP consultant.
