- Save time and resources setting up and managing access, and on support calls (e.g., password resets).
- Have more assurance about the identity of collaborating researchers accessing the service.
- Have better information on when access should be revoked (and thereby comply better with the GDPR).
- Use open standards to interface with SRAM, which also align with standards used in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
- Institutions offering services: stop having to create zero hour contracts (nulurencontracten), often saving thereby saving money on licenses connected to those zero hour contracts.
- Can delegate access management for researchers and research services, for instance to Research Support employees.
- Have a better view of which researchers are involved in what research collaborations.
- Improve compliance with the GDPR since researchers are not incentivised to use local or social accounts 'to do their work'.
- Access is revoked as soon as the researcher leaves your institution.

Consider mentioning SRAM in your grants/policy, since research collaborations using SRAM to manage access can spend more time and resources on actual research.
