About Departing CSCF Employees

When someone moves on, we need to remove references to them from various documentation, and access to various systems. Most of what needs to be done can be derived from the New Employee Guide, however there are things that may happen sometime after someone has started work. The following list is most likely incomplete, being updated mostly when someone leaves.


We describe changes to access elsewhere, as some parts of it might not be appropriate for public consumption.

Documentation, Contacts
