ACCESS MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

AMS homepage overview:
Your AMS homepage is the starting point for using AMS and your applications. Simply click on the link that represents the application you want to access and AMS will take you there.

Some of your application links are displayed with a padlock icon, which indicates that you can only access them with your HSPD-12 access card. Unless you logged into AMS with your card, you will be prompted to insert it and/or enter your PIN.

More about application links:
Getting to and logging into many of the applications used at HHS have become easier by making them accessible through AMS. When a link for a particular application is listed on your AMS homepage, you are an authorized user and only one click away from launching it.

While links for some applications are automatically provided, other applications require that you complete a one-time linking process. For more information and step-by-step instructions on how to customize the AMS homepage with the link/delink utility, visit the how-to page to view the "How to Link or Delink an Application With Your AMS Homepage" job aid.
