Before EvaluationWeb access is granted, all persons requesting access must be identity proofed via the CDC’s Secure Access Management Services (SAMS) system. Once identity proofing is complete, Luther Consulting will provide instructions on accessing EvaluationWeb.
Below are the steps to become identity proofed.
Go to EvaluationWeb Request CDC eAuthentication page. Complete the form, including project (HIV), jurisdiction (Minnesota), full legal name, email, telephone number, and agency. Submit the on-line form.
The User Agreement Form (PDF: 152KB/1 page) must be signed and submitted to MDH along with the Add/Edit Account Form when a new user account is being established.
Review the Rules of Behavior (PDF: 240KB/15 pages) and indicate acknowledgement by signing the User Agreement Form.
Submit your completed Add/Edit Account form and User Agreement to:
Minnesota Department of Health
STD and HIV Section – Attn: Tina Klein
625 Robert Street North, P.O. Box 64975
St. Paul, Minnesota 55164-0975
or via confidential fax: 651-201-4040
You will receive your first invitation email from “Sams-No-Reply (CDC)” (See example in Attachment 1, e-Authentication and User Registration Steps: PDF: 160KB/9 pages). This email includes a link to the SAMS portal. SAMS is CDC’s secure website where public health partners can access sensitive information and applications, such as EvaluationWeb, that are not available to the public. The email will also have your SAMS user ID and a temporary password.
Log into SAMS using the website link, user ID, and temporary password included in your first invitation email and complete the registration. The password you set during the registration process will be your password for accessing SAMS in the future.
Be sure to enter your name and address as they appear on your government-issued ID, unless you have legally changed your name or moved since the ID was issued.
If you legally changed your name since your government ID was issued, you will also need to provide supporting documentation, such as a legal name change certification or marriage certificate. If you have moved since your government ID was issued, you will also need to provide a current utilities bill.
After registration you will receive a second email from “Sams-No-Reply (CDC)” (See example in Attachment 2 in e-Authentication and User Registration Steps: PDF: 160KB/9 pages). This email contains the identity verification request form at the bottom.
Print this email and present it with a government-issued identity document to a notary public or MDH designated proofing agent.
The notary or proofing agent will verify your identity document (and any supporting documentation, if needed) and complete their portion of the printed email. Specific instructions on verifying the identity document and completing the form are on the email form.
Acceptable identity documents include government-issued photo ID cards that have an ID number (e.g., state-issued driver’s license, U.S. military ID, or U.S. passport).
Fax or mail the printed email form, along with a copy of the identity document(s), to:
Toll-free fax number:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Attn: Proofing Authority
1600 Clifton Road, N.E.
Atlanta, GA 30333
You will receive approval by a third email (See example in Attachment 3 in e-Authentication and User Registration Steps: PDF: 160KB/9 pages) and U.S. Postal Service at your provided address.
Once approved, you will receive a fourth email, from Luther Consulting, with separate EvaluationWeb login instructions (See example in Attachment 4 in e-Authentication and User Registration Steps: PDF: 160KB/9 pages).
(Ignore the login instructions for EvaluationWeb that are included in the third approval email from SAMS.)
