What is an organization?
An organization is the umbrella within which users will gain the different MoGEM portal roles for conducting business with the Department of Natural Resources (MoDNR). For example, a business may be an organization which assigns staff members and consultants to roles for the processing of a permit.
Why can’t I find my organization?
You can only find an organization if it already exists within Shared CROMERR Services (SCS). Only an Organization Official can enter a new organization. The Organization Official must be the first person within the organization to create an account. If you will be a Certifier, Preparer, or Viewer, please ask your Organization Official to establish an account and enter a new organization before you create an account.
How do I create an organization?
You must be an Organization Official to create an organization. After you have chosen a partner, program and role, you will need to first search the existing organizations. If your organization is not found, Shared CROMERR Services (SCS). presents a link for creating a new organization.
If I didn’t get verified by LexisNexis, how can I proceed?
If you fail to get verified by LexisNexis with too many attempts, the system will lock. In this case, you must wait one hour before additional attempts. If you are unable to pass identity verification, click the link to print and sign a manual verification. Mail it to the address indicated on the form or to the direct staff member you have dealt with regarding the program service you are registering for.
What services does MoGEM currently provide?
MoGEM currently provides access to ePermitting for Land Disturbance permits, reporting for Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO), and Land Reclamation Information System (LRIS) for Industrial Mineral permits.
Who is an Account Owner in EPA-SCS?
While creating your account in EPA’s Shared CROMERR Services (SCS), the account owner section should be your personal information, not the company information. Use your legal name, on your birth certificate, and not nicknames for your account owner information.
What is an eSignature?
An eSignature is a legally binding signature, same as a signature on a piece of paper.
What is a Challenge/eSIG-PIN/Secret Question?
Challenge questions are also known as secret questions or eSIG-PIN questions. These five (5) questions are used any time you have to electronically sign within a MoDNR system.
To log in to the MoDNR system I’m doing business with, do I have to go through the MoGEM portal and EPA website?
Yes, the first time accessing the MoGEM portal, you will have to create your account through the EPA’s Shared CROMERR Services (SCS) website. If you are a user which will have an eSignature, you will also have to go through the Lexis/Nexis identity website. Once you have created an account in EPA’s SCS website, you then will log in to the MoGEM portal in order to access the MoDNR system you need to do business with.
Why do I have to use the MoGEM portal instead of the Citizen Application Gateway (CAG)?
The MoGEM portal will serve as the new login mechanism for accessing the MoDNR system you are needing to do business with. Systems which are accessed through CAG for MoDNR are transitioning to the MoGEM portal due to the Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA) electronic reporting rule published in 2015.
