Outside Activities Tracking System (UC OATS) portal is now live and
available for outside activities entry, review, and approval at the
Further, we invite you to view a brief video that will enhance your
understanding of UC OATS as a new faculty system on this campus:
UC OATS is mandatory beginning with your FY 2018-2019 annual disclosures. November 1, 2019 is the campus annual disclosures deadline. All faculty members are required to certify annual disclosures in the UC OATS system, even if they plan to certify that they have no annual disclosures to report. Effective immediately, requests for pre-approval for Category I designated activities must also be processed in UC OATS.
For faculty, reviewers, and approvers still in need of system and policy
training, please note the following upcoming training opportunities:
In the future, faculty completion of formal conflict of commitment
policy and UC OATS system training via in person, webinar, or on-demand
training may be tracked as one aspect of certifying compliance. For
this reason, it is recommended that you avail yourself of training
options that use the UC Learning Center enrollment and tracking system. If you haven't done so already, please visit the UC OATS Training
Resources page to formally enroll:
In addition to Conflict of Commitment (COC) requirements, faculty (and other research personnel) are obligated to comply with UC's Export Control Policy and to make appropriate disclosures relative to Conflicts of Interest (COI). Please feel free to contact the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research with any questions regarding COI and/or Export Control.
We look forward to your participation in UC OATS and are delighted to welcome this new, environmentally friendly, Enterprise Systems Renewal system to UC San Diego.
