Yes, all without salary visitors need to be entered into PPS.
The Visitor Form Letter, a UCSB biography form, and a patent agreement must be submitted to Academic Personnel.
The approval authority is with the Department Chair or Director (with post-audit by Academic Personnel).
No, Academic Personnel will not contact the department(s), when doing the post-audit, unless there is a question, clarification needed, or the appointment doesn’t look appropriate, per policy.
Appointments may only be made for one year at a time. Reappointment is possible, however individuals with longer term associations with the University may be better suited for either appointment into another title or affiliate status (see below.)
No. Only visitors who meet the criteria outlined in the policy are covered. Individuals who do not meet the criteria may still receive a UCSBnetID by holding affiliate status through identity management. Further information is available at http://www.identity.ucsb.edu/customers/affiliates/
By policy, visitors covered by this policy are not employees. As such, they do not need to sign a state oath or an I-9 form. They are however, required to sign a patent agreement. In PPS, the “I-9 signature date” field may be left blank. The “oath signature date” should be filled in using the patent agreement signature date.
Yes, the academic purpose of the visit must be stated on the form.
No, they may not.
