Annual Conflict of Commitment Reporting for APM-025

On October 7, 2022, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Personnel Michael S. Levine and Vice Chancellor for Research and Creative Activities Roger Wakimoto reminded faculty of prior approval and reporting requirements related to outside professional activities and how to comply with UC policy as described in the Academic Personnel Manual 025 (APM-025).

APM-025 provides faculty with the framework to manage potential conflicts of commitment as they balance university obligations with outside activities. A conflict of commitment may occur when a faculty member’s outside activities interfere with their professional obligations to students, colleagues, or the university as a whole.

All eligible faculty members should use the UC Outside Activity Tracking System (OATS) to request prior approval and report effort for outside activities. Faculty are required to report outside activities and certify activities for the fiscal year 2021-22 (July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022) by October 31, 2022. To access UC OATS visit the Academic Personnel Office OATS page.
