NOTICE (12/2/13): Having Trouble Extending Your Volunteer's Computer Access?If you did not use the CARS system to submit your volunteer's original computer access request, you will need to set up a profile for them before you can submit an extension request. How do you set up a profile for them in CARS? After you login, and select "Request Access," you will need to select a green link that says "Create a Contractor/Vendor/Temp Account." That link will open up a new browser window, asking you for basic information about your volunteer to create a profile. After you have submitted this information you can close this browser window, go back to the CARS system and then "Search" for your volunteer – they will now be found in the system, in which you can request to extend their access.
