NEW RF Personnel OnBoard System!
I-9 Verification Process post pandemic
According to recent changes implemented by DHS/SSA, most I-9 verifications must take place with in-person meetings. Virtual I-9’s are reserved solely for remote positions. All regular and hybrid appointments must present their documentation in person.
The first step in hiring anyone new is I-9/e-verification. This ensures the employee is legally eligible to work, and is required to be completed on or before their first day of work. Our office will reach out to the employee directly to complete this application.
Once the I-9 is cleared, we move on to the second step, which is the onboarding application. Onboarding is now done electronically through the RF website. This is an application that is created and submitted by the PI.
In order to initiate the I-9, the following information is required:
Employees full first name as listed on their SSN
Full last name as listed on their SSN
Last four digits of their SSN
Official start date
RF account number being used
NEW NSF Proposal Guide and New Biosketch Requirements!
NSF issued the 2023 PAPPG in January 2023 requiring all proposals be submitted via Research.gov. In addition, all biosketches and C&P forms must be generated via SciENcv.
A new PAPPG is expected in January 2024 and there will be a few more changes we expect.
