PEMS: DID YOU KNOW?

New PEMS password requirements

PEMS passwords are required to meet the new security complexity guidelines. PEMS is a secure online portal supported by Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). To assist with protection from unauthorised users, PEMS passwords are now required to meet security complexity guidelines. 

On your next password reset, your password must include:

  • an alphabetic letter
  • a number, and
  • a special character, such as !@#$%^&.

You will not be able to set a password that:

  • contains your first name
  • contains your last name
  • contains your user ID
  • is globally recognised as ‘weak’, such as 123456
  • you have previously used.

Existing users are not required to change their current password, however, the password complexity requirements must be met for newly created passwords and for password resets.

PEMS Email Notifications

Following feedback from PEMS users, new email notification functionality has been implemented. In addition to the existing email notifications in PEMS (for assignment and return of  domestic travel, leave applications and office claims) the system will email a notification to the parliamentarian or their authorised officer when a travel or office claim is awaiting consideration.

If you prefer not to receive PEMS notifications when a claim is ready for your action, you can opt out by changing the Email Notification Settings in the Staff & Member Profile Tile. Please be aware that this will cease all PEMS email notifications for claim actions.
For additional information on how to opt out or in please refer to OPT-IN OR OPT-OUT OF EMAIL NOTIFICATION help guide.
