The objective of the Expression Engine (EE) and Single Sign-On (SSO) Implementation project is to upgrade the current content management system (CMS), Expression Engine, to a supported version, version 5. The CMS is used by website content owners to manage the creation and modification of digital/website content.

An additional objective is to enable single sign on and multifactor authentication functionality on all Expression Engine website installations.
