Registration for Open Payments Reporting Entities
User Roles for Reporting Entities
There are four user roles for reporting entities: Officer, Submitter, Attester, and Compliance. Reporting entities must have individuals assigned to these roles within the Open Payments system before they can use the system. Users may have multiple roles. Each reporting entity can have up to 10 users, but no more than 5 users can hold an officer role.
The person registering your organization must select the role of officer. They can also select the role of submitter and/or attester or choose others for these roles. At least one person must be identified for each of the four roles in the Open Payments system during initial registration, whether it is the individual registering in all four roles or others that they choose. The system will not allow you to proceed without at least one person chosen for each user role.
More information about the functions and requirements of each role is outlined in the table below.
Learn more about the user roles and the nomination through the Quick Reference Guides available on the Resources page.
