Editor’s note: The following CalMessage was sent to Berkeley faculty on July 18, 2019. It represents a collaborative team comprised of Berkeley Regional Services (BRS), Visiting Scholar and Postdoc Affairs (VSPA), the Berkeley International Office (BIO), UCPath and the VC Research Office who have developed a revised process for the timely collection of University Services fees for Visiting Scholars and Visiting Student Researchers. This change was required as critical system checks in the previous process could not be supported through UCPath without significant customization.

Dear Reader/Tutors and Supervisors,

We have important news to share -- a new application has been created which will allow Reader/Tutors to record their hours worked using an online app instead of completing a paper timesheet. This application will bring significant relief from manual data entry by our Payroll teams and increase the accuracy and availability of timesheets.
