Outside Activity Tracking System (OATS)

OATS is scheduled to go live at UCR during spring quarter 2019-20AY. Accounts will be automatically generated and campus users will login via the UCR OATS portal with their UCR NetID and Password.

What is OATS?

OATS is a web-based application that supports the required collection, review, approval, and annual reporting of the outside professional activities subject to the University of California's Conflict of Commitment policies: APM-025, APM-240, APM-246, and APM-671.

OATS replaces the current APM 025, 240, 246, 671 annual reporting online system and the paper-based prior approval processes. The system will also help to broaden understanding around the University's conflict of commitment policies, support compliance requirements, and improve reporting capabilities.

OATS supports the following:

  • Requests to engage in an APM 025/APM 671 Category I activity
  • Requests to involve students in an outside professional activity
  • Report and record time engaged in APM 025/APM 671 Category I and II activities
  • Annually certify outside professional activities that are subject to APM 025, 240, 246, 671
  • Track earnings for Health Sciences Compensated faculty, Deans, and Faculty Administrators
