Secure Environment: TEASE and TEAL

TEA's secure software applications (that is, applications that require the user to apply for a user account, in order to prevent unauthorized access to confidential data) are accessed through a "secure environment." These applications include the Expenditure Reporting (ER) system and eGrants, which TEA grantees need to draw down grant funds and to access electronic grants.

The agency's current secure environment is the TEA Secure Environment (TEASE). In the near future, however, TEASE will be replaced with the TEA Login (TEAL).

For instructions on how to request TEAL access and link TEASE applications to a new TEAL account, see the links listed at the bottom of this page.
