Initially only fiscal agents will be given access to the new system. Districts that are members of consortia will be given access later in the process.
Each grant recipient’s primary Perkins contact has been designated as such in the new site and should have the appropriate permissions assigned. Log into www.coloradocte.com and check your access to see if you can see the ‘Grants’ card. If so, click on it and you’re in!
If not, each district/college/consortium has one primary CTE contact who is that district/college/consortium’s ‘power user.’ That person has the ability to set up all of their colleagues’ log-ins and determine what type of access they should have, including for Perkins. The power user will have access to all modules within the system; currently only program approval universal contacts and grants are live, so you will continue to see additional modules released in the coming months.
At the present time, the district/college/consortium’s power user will be able to assign whether the users should be able to submit sections of the local application, modify the application but not submit, or have read-only access to the grant application. Grants permissions are assigned in addition to any programs permissions you might have. Additional permissions will also be released as additional functionality is released.
If you do not already have an account in the new site (www.coloradocte.com), you will need to work with the power user for your organization or contact Victoria (email@example.com) for assistance.
New user accounts will receive an automated notification email from a “noreply” address with your log-in information for how to enter Coloradocte.com. Your user name is your work email – hurrah! The first time you log-in might be a little wonky, so please don’t give up.
DO NOT SHARE YOUR LOG-IN PASSWORD. Do you realize that if you share your log-in you are liable for any actions taken by your user account? Think about it, once we have all of the modules housed in the system–if you can access program approvals, Perkins grant funding, CTA funding, etc. through your log-in, then whoever you share the password with will be able to, too! Get/give those folks who need access their own permissions!
