Account Sponsor Policy

Individuals requesting an INL HPC account are required to have an INL collaborator act as a sponsor. The sponsor helps ensure appropriate use and coordinates the approvals required for granting access to INL computer systems. They should have some level of familiarity with the work the requestor wants to accomplish using INL computing resources.

For INL employees, the account sponsor is the employee’s line manager. External requestors may select an account sponsor as part of the request process. The account sponsor should be:

  • A person with whom the requestor has a collaborative relationship.
  • A U.S. citizen.
  • An INL employee.

For external requestors who do not have an INL collaborator that meets the above requirements, instructions on providing additional details in the account request are provided in the registration system.
