Hi Jacob

Great question. To my knowledge, there are two options available. If you want to contribute cycles by allowing more than 500 jobs at a time, it is a good idea to set up HTCondor-CE. See more details here at http://opensciencegrid.org/docs/compute-element/htcondor-ce-overview/
The other is a light weight approach based on an account and SSH key set up.
Here is a good starting doc for the OSG managed services https://support.opensciencegrid.org/support/solutions/articles/12000025149-osg-managed-services
