Reminder: Report outside activities by April 30

This is a reminder to those who have not yet completed their 2010 Outside Activities Report (OAR) that the April 30 deadline is rapidly approaching. Please access the Web page for completing the OAR here. This report is required under federal and state regulations and University policy. The OAR identifies outside activities and financial interests related to an individual’s University work.

As a reminder, the following individuals are required to complete this annual Outside Activity Report whether or not they have any outside activities, outside income or outside ownership interests to report.

  1. Anyone holding a faculty appointment, including those with 0% appointments (Emeriti are also included in this group);
  2. Anyone holding an academic staff appointment of 50% or greater, and;
  3. Anyone who does not fall into the previous two categories but is listed on either a federal grant or a human subjects protocol.

Your departmental chair and/or the appropriate dean or director will review the report. Individual reports remain accessible as open records under the provisions of Wisconsin’s public records law. CALS faculty and staff members who have questions about this process, should direct them to Cheryl J Deering, 240m Agricultural Hall, 262-2536,

We thank you for your cooperation in meeting the state and federal requirements for outside activities reporting.

Paul DeLuca, Provost
William Mellon, Associate Dean for Research Policy, Graduate School
