uc_oats_logo_blue.svgThe University of California Outside Activity Tracking System (UC OATS) project is focused on campus-wide conflict of commitment tracking and certification system for faculty and administrators.

The UC OATS project:

  • Replaces the current Conflict of Commitment paper forms with a greener electronic system
  • Streamlines practices and ensures greater participation across General Campus, SIO, and the Health Sciences
  • Automates the assessment process for conflict of commitment levels and tracks the time threshold
  • Handles requests to engage in an APM 025 Category I activity, requests to involve students in an outside professional activity, and tracks time reporting for APM 025 Category I and II activities
  • Provides a seamless web-based system to submit all Conflict of Commitment disclosures for APM 025 and APM 671 consistent with federal, state and University policies.
  • Automates implementation of logic-based classifications of entered activities, taking the guess work out of Conflict of Commitment
  • Integrates this system with existing campus communication and log in infrastructure to trigger and track disclosure forms and sends notifications to faculty and administrators
  • Retains conflict of commitment data, moving forward, so faculty members or administrators may view multiple years of approved activities, as applicable
  • Provides real-time processing and approval status(es)
  • Decreases institutional risk through quicker accessibility to outside activity information and earlier identification of conflict of commitment issues
