Faculty Compensation System Overview
Faculty Update Form
Introduction to Faculty Invoice System
In an effort to ensure accurate and timely compensation for all faculty services provided to Akamai University and our students, the compensation policy requests that all faculty members make use of the Faculty Invoicing System. From this point forward a Purchase Order (PO) for services will be issued by Akamai University, to notify instructor of request for service any periods of student instruction, graduate committee services, and the various other services. Such a Purchase Order should also prompt the submission of an Invoice by faculty for the services requested by the University within the Purchase Order. This process will greatly improve the University' record system, speed the compensation of faculty, and provide a more auditable set of records.
Akamai faculty are asked to invoice the University for all future charges (when prompted by a PO) and unpaid compensation to date, if any, so the University may update and correct its financial records for each faculty member, and issue compensation as due. Retroactive invoicing is needed to correct and compensate faculty for what appears to be major holes in the Universityís records from past staff files, and will not be preceded by PO. Our processes are perfected but need to fill all gaps in faculty data still remains.
The process for the Faculty Invoicing System will operate as follows:
1. Akamai University will issue a Purchase Order (PO) for services at the time that any faculty member accepts a role in servicing a new or existing student, upon receipt of a student course enrollment form, or upon receipt of a studentís program completion documents (thesis proposal, etc.). This PO will be sent electronically, directly to the faculty member via emailómaking it imperative that Akamai University has your most current and active email address of file.
2. Faculty members are then expected to submit the Faculty Invoice Form within a period of 15 days from the completion of services rendered. The Faculty Invoice Form should be accompanied by any additionally documents necessary for student processing , i.e. student study plan, class syllabi, class grade reports, degree record form, final exam notes, approved research proposal, approved research manuscript, and records from thesis defense as notated in the faculty payment schedule.
The Faculty Payment Schedule, a useful reference document, provides a detailed layout of the compensation rates for faculty providing the various services. The form also clarifies the documents that should be attached to the faculty invoice and when. The payment schedule, invoice, and invoice instructions are important reference documents, which should be saved to your personal files, and used for the completion of the Faulty Invoice.
