CAMS Security Administrator (SA) Changes
To use the ISO’s Customer and Assets Management System (CAMS), a company must first designate at least one individual to be a CAMS Security Administrator (SA). An SA is responsible for assigning roles in CAMS and issuing digital certificates, which are necessary for many market activities at the ISO.
Designating an SA is normally done during the new membership application process. However, if your company does not have an SA, would like to revoke an SA, or would like to designate another SA:
- Complete, notarize, and return the ISO New England Security Administrator Signatory Page.
- The form must be signed by a company officer and notarized. Incomplete forms will not be processed.
