Government staff and contractors working with King County on current county business or to collaborate on regional work may be granted access to a SharePoint site. If you are a non-King County employee collaborating or doing business with King County and you need to access a County SharePoint site to do your work, you're in the right place!

But first, if you haven't done so already, you'll want to touch base with the King County employee managing the work in question. As your County contact, he or she should be able to give you all the information you need to fill out the form below. Then, fill out the form, and--if all proceeds correctly--you should expect user-access information within five business days. We strongly recommend following detailed instructions.

Limitations

External SharePoint access is limited to King County partners, contractors, and others involved in official county and/or regional work.

King County's SharePoint Online 2010 implementation supports operating systems, mobile devices, and browsers as documented in "Microsoft SharePoint Online for Enterprises Service Description."

Getting SharePoint access

Who administers SharePoint?

Microsoft is responsible for administering the server and hosting the site including backup and restoration. King County staff administer the Sharepoint software by configuring accounts, maintain collections and sites, and adding features. Depending on assigned permissions, site users may modify content on the site; for example, editing shared documents, adding and deleting documents, posting messages, maintaining lists, responding to surveys, etc or may have read-only access.
