Research Foundation E-Time Reporting Goes Live July 1

Published June 17, 2016

Research Foundation Regular, Graduate Student, and Hourly employees will submit timesheets online beginning July 1, 2016.

Research Foundation Online Time and Attendance

We are excited to announce the upcoming implementation of our online time and attendance system for Research Foundation employees.

As an employee or a supervisor of an RF employee the submission, review, and approval of timesheets will now be done online through the Research Foundation business applications portal. This is accessed using your Research Foundation web account. This is the same account that is used to access RF business applications, and employee self-service.

For Salaried Non-exempt Employees

What do I need to do?

1. Ensure you have access to The Research Foundation employee portal. If you have never accessed this account, or are having trouble logging in please contact Research Foundation Customer Services. You will need to provide your RF employee ID number, which can be found on your pay stub or by contacting Human Resources.

2. Review the E-time reporting guide for non-exempt employees.

3.  Ensure all your timesheets are up to date. Your June 24, 2016 timesheet must be received by HR by June 30, 2016.
