CONTRACT OR SHORT-TERM FUNDING

No: S-25

Date: November 17, 1980

Authority: UWM Administration


For the implementation of sections 104.01 and 104.02 of the UWM Academic Staff Personnel Policies and Procedures as related to fixed-term academic staff appointments on grant, contract or short-term funding, the following Administrative Policy shall apply:


A fixed-term appointment sustained, supported or underwritten by a grant, contract or short-term funding may be renewed for an unlimited period of time to the extent that full funding is available from such source(s) and the appointee satisfies the requirements of the position. Such appointments, however, do not imply a commitment of employment beyond the duration of the sources of funding.


Fixed-term appointments supported by extramural funding or other short-term funding are ineligible for probationary and indefinite status regardless of the number of times such appointments are renewed. Each document evidencing an appointment under this policy must carry the notation "contingent on availability of funds."
