ODURF Guidelines and Approval

Do you ever use ODU classified employees to work on funded research
projects? If so you need to be aware of the procedure on Secondary

Foundation, effective November 1, 2005.

In order to hire an ODU employee on a funded project, written approval for
outside employment by ODU classified employees through the Research
Foundation must be obtained and placed on file with the University’s
Department of Human Resources and the Research Foundation.

Approval is obtained by completing an “Old Dominion University Classified

obtaining required approval signatures from the employee’s supervisor and
the appropriate ODU Dean or Vice President prior to work being authorized.
The Old Dominion University Classified Employee Secondary Employment with

forwarded to ODU Human Resources and a copy attached to the ODURF Payroll
Authorization Form (108) authorizing the work. Employment status at the
Research Foundation will be “Temporary” (hourly paid).

ODU classified employees must complete new hire paperwork at the Research
Foundation prior to work being authorized. The Research Foundation is a
separate corporation. ODURF time sheets must be completed for all hours
