PPS - PPS to ISIS interface (3/1/11)
To ensure ease of scheduling and inclusion of faculty in institutional reporting related to instruction, please follow the four business practices noted below:
- Enter new appointments in PPS as soon as you have the necessary employment forms (i.e., do not wait until the October PPS deadline to enter a 10/1 lecturer appointment).
- Process a recall appointment for a retired faculty member who will be teaching any course (including 199s and 299s), even if he or she is teaching on a non-salaried basis.
- Enter Adjunct Professor appointments in PPS, even if appointees are non-salaried.
- If you hire a visiting instructor (professor, lecturer, etc.) from another UC campus, process the necessary file and temporary intercampus appointment form, and also add the individual to the UCSD affiliates database. Since these individuals cannot be entered in the UCSD payroll system, they must be entered in the affiliates database to ensure that their status as UCSD instructors is captured in institutional reporting.
