Outside Activity Reports Due Sept. 15
All College of Medicine and Hoxworth employees with a full-time equivalency (FTE) of 50 percent or more must complete the Outside Activity Report (OAR) no later than Friday, Sept. 15, to comply with federal deadlines. All faculty and staff who engage in research at UC are required to complete this annual report of collateral employment and outside activity regardless of their FTE percentage. Any activity outside of the scope of normal UC duties—even duties performed at UC and unpaid activities—must be reported. Failing to report or to truthfully report outside activities may result in disciplinary action.
The OAR system now uses human resources data to route an employee’s outside activity report to their supervisor for the first level of review and approval. A five-minute OAR approver training video for supervisors is available. To complete the OAR, go to https://webcentral.uc.edu/oar/index.cfm (requires your Central Login username and password). Questions other than technical issues can be sent to OARquestions@uc.edu.
