The .gov means it’s official.
Federal government websites often end in .gov or .mil. Before sharing sensitive information, make sure you’re on a federal government site.

The https:// ensures that you are connecting to the official website and that any information you provide is encrypted and transmitted securely.

Changing your name

TTS does our best to make everyone feel welcome. During the onboarding process, we can’t always ensure that your preferred name is reflected in all of GSA’s systems. You can update your records so that people who look at your name on emails and in Google Meet are reminded to use the name that makes you most comfortable.

Changing your name across GSA

You can change your name by following these steps:

  1. Log in to the GSA network or a VPN
  2. Ensure your PIV is connected to your computer.
  3. Go to HR Links
  4. Once logged in, click the HR Self-Service drop down at the top.
  5. In the upper right corner of your HR Links screen is a compass icon. That is your NavBar. Click that.
  6. Select Navigator > Self Service > Personal Information
  7. Select Name Change (USF)
  8. Enter your preferred name and attach the necessary document.
  9. Wait up to 5 business days for the changes to take effect. You will receive an automated email from HR links stating that it has been submitted.
  10. Once your name has been updated in GCIMS via HRLinks, you can submit a GSA IT Help Desk to update your google account.

If you have trouble with this process, you can open a GSA IT Help Desk ticket for assistance.
