Humboldt State University Sponsored Programs Foundation
Before any employee starts work on a grant, trust, or any SPF related project they must complete an Appointment Packet a.k.a hiring packet. Each time a new project number is issued, a new appointment form must be completed for employees working for that project. Appointment Packets should be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to submitting your first timesheet on that project.
It is also important to remember that P.I.’s must “appoint” themselves to all projects they work on. To lessen the paperwork burden, we created the Multiple Project Form to allow P.I.’s to appoint themselves and their existing employees to more than one project at a time. All forms can be found on our website.
