2019-2020 contracts for all contract-eligible, fiscal and academic faculty will be available electronically through the Faculty Data Self Service (FDSS) area of OneUSG Connect. Faculty will be able to access their contracts for review, print and signature at the beginning of June 2019.

To allow for flexibility around two scheduled OneUSG Connect updates in June, faculty are expected to sign their contracts for this contract year within 25 days of receipt (increased from 20 days).  Faculty members are encouraged to verify their login and access to OneUSG Connect and their Faculty Data Self Service before leaving campus at the end of the spring semester.

Similar to previous years, the contract administration process will begin with Budget Development, and new and corrected contracts may be requested by the appointment unit’s business office after the first cycle of contracts are delivered. Units also will have the ability to preview contract data before delivery to their faculty’s FDSS pages in the OneUSG Connect system. 

The Office of Faculty Affairs and UGA’s OneSource Project will develop a number of communication and training opportunities to ensure that units and faculty are prepared to utilize this new method of faculty contract administration. These will be available by mid-May.
