Contract Review and Administration for Fixed Term (CRAFT) Project Update

The HR Branch and Technology Services teams are working together on the Contract Review and Administration for Fixed Term (CRAFT) project to introduce an automated and streamlined process (with online workflows that are consistent with the University’s delegations of authorities), in readiness for the review of over 500 fixed term employment contracts which conclude in December 2014.

This CRAFT project update is to provide you with information about the activities required to enable the smooth transition from the current paper-based TES process to the online CRAFT solution.

  • Human Resources has sent out the last TES forms (pink forms) relating to fixed-term contracts ending between now and the end of November 2014, as per the current process.
  • Any completed TES forms received by Human Resources by 26 September 2014, will be processed by Human Resources no later than 10 October 2014.
  • Any TES forms that are not received by Human Resources by 26 September 2014 will be reissued within the CRAFT online workflow.
  • Please note that after 26 September 2014, no further TES forms (pink forms) will be accepted by Human Resources for processing.

Senior Staff Contracts are out of scope for the CRAFT project and will continue to utilise the TES paper-based process until early 2015 when they will also be transitioned to CRAFT. Human Resources will liaise directly with the relevant areas around this process.

Summary of Key Dates:
26 September 2014 Final date for paper based TES forms to be returned to HR
10 October 2014 All TES forms (requiring no amendments) processed by Human Resources
Week of 13 October 2014 Go-Live for CRAFT Phase 1. Areas will begin to utilise the CRAFT online workflow.

Further detailed communication, as well as system training and materials will be provided as part of the project.
