Become a TSA Signer! Becoming a TSA signer provides you with the ability to order any of our tests, assessment systems, publications, or free support materials.
IPMA-HR requires a Test Security Agreement (TSA) to be on file prior to ordering test materials. There is no fee associated with filing a TSA. All security agreements are subject to review and must be approved by the Assessment Services Department. Security agreements should be completed by appropriate individuals and returned to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Signed security agreements returned by fax or e-mail are required to provide an official, verifiable agency-related e-mail address for the primary signer. Agreements returned with a non-department specific e-mail address, such as aol.com, hotmail.com, gmail.com, or comcast.net must be submitted by mail.
If an authorized signer resigns from an agency or moves into a new position that removes them from the testing process, a new TSA must be filed. A TSA filed by an individual at one department is not transferable to a new department. Promptly filing a new TSA with IPMA-HR will ensure that future test orders are not delayed due to the unavailability of an authorized signer.
NOTE: If you need to add someone to your account who requires access to tests, such as an SME or test administrator, but would like to make sure they do not have the ability to receive tests directly, please complete a Limited Access Security Agreement.
The Limited Access Security Agreement (LASA) should be signed by anyone who will be handling IPMA-HR test materials, but who should not have the ability to receive test materials directly. Examples include:
While in the possession of a test-utilizing agency, IPMA-HR testing products should be kept secure at all times by an authorized signer. IPMA-HR should be promptly notified about any breach in the security of our testing products so that appropriate and immediate measures can be taken to ensure the continued security of our tests.
Under no circumstances may testing material be reused. The reuse of test booklets constitutes a serious violation of IPMA-HR’s Test Security Agreement by compromising the integrity of the testing products and procedures. Failure to comply may provoke litigation.
Permission is not granted to any agency to adapt, translate, modify, reproduce, or quote test material. Any adaptation, translation, modification, reproduction or quotation of test material is a violation of copyright law.
