TECHNICAL TRAINING

December 2012

quick overview
Quick Overview

Project Sunlight requires certain New York State entities to report certain appearances by the public in an online searchable database.

Each State entity has an “Agency Liaison” for Project Sunlight.

Each State entity is responsible for designating certain employees to serve as the recorders of information into the Project Sunlight database.

State entities are required to develop an internal process by which these designated employees are informed of covered appearances that must be entered into the database.

For more information on Project Sunlight please read the Project Sunlight FAQ (your Agency Liaison should have a copy) and Substantive Training (found on the Statewide Learning Management System).

getting started
Getting Started

The database will be available online at www.projectsunlight.ny.gov/login. You will use your New York State Directory Service user ID and Password to log on.

Contact your Project Sunlight Agency Liaison if you have any issues logging on.

If you have issues with your NYSDS credentials themselves, contact your IT department.

When you are finished, click “Next” to continue.

Once you have the “Add Meeting Form,” you will be asked to record information about the individuals who participated in the meeting, telephone call, or video-conference. You will record the State government participants first.
