Microsoft Edge Users: We are currently researching an issue using ESS in Microsoft Edge browsers. Until a solution is implemented, select “...” in the upper right hand corner of the browser, then select “Open with Internet Explorer”.

ESS Portal is being replaced! The ESS Portal will be replaced with a new self-service application called MyPortal on May 16, 2020. For more information, including a “sneak peak” demonstration and user procedures for the new application, visit the My Portal – ESS replacement project page.
