Placements Release Summary

This release delivers functionality to create placements in Aurion, which prepares Casual Academic staff for receiving the work schedule that will drive payment. 

Release goal and expected benefits

School Administrators can create placements to allow casual academics to be paid by schedule. 

Functional Limitations

There is no integration in this release with the Aurion build (R1.1). Not until R1.3 will the data collected in this interface will be linked with the Aurion processes resulting in an integrated process for appointing/ placing casual academic staff and paying them by a planned schedule. 

Variants and URL Release

 

Variants and URL Release Summary

This release moves the solution to cahp.uq.edu.au and resolves an integration issue for courses with variants.

Release goal and expected benefits

Courses with variants will be available to administer in the system.

Functional Limitations

There is no integration in this release with the Aurion build (R1.1). Not until R1.3 will the data collected in this interface will be linked with the Aurion processes resulting in an integrated process for appointing/ placing casual academic staff and paying them by a planned schedule. 

Release 1.2

Release Summary

This release provides an interface to support data collection for the creation of the payment schedule for all the Schools in The University. 

Release goal and expected benefits

The interface includes configuration options to allow School and Programs to configure the types of teaching activities that are relevant to their units and the pay rates associated with these. The course planning interface is linked with SI-net and Syllabus+ to provide course planners with access to the most up to date information available to support their work. School Administrators can create teaching activities and courses that are not available in SI-net to allow casual academics to be paid by schedule for these activities.

Functional Limitations

There is no integration in this release with the Aurion build (R1.1). Not until R1.3 will the data collected in this interface will be linked with the Aurion processes resulting in an integrated process for appointing/ placing casual academic staff and paying them by a planned schedule. 

Release 1.1

Release summary

Release 1.1 is a pilot release involving the School of Maths and Physics and the UQ Business School in summer semester, 2017. The Schools will prepare their appointments and payment schedules in spreadsheet format. These spreadsheets will be loaded into Aurion by the Aurion support team, and the casual academics will be paid according to the schedules. Variations to the schedule will be managed by a new Aurion form for modifying the payment schedule. 

Release goal and expected benefits

The value of the pilot is to identify any considerations in development, implementation and operation of the Aurion component of the solution prior to it being made available to all the Schools it the University. It is understood that this may result in additional work to be performed in order to scale it up to support the full enterprise. The business value of the features themselves are described below.

Functional Limitations

The loading of the schedule is a one off exercise undertaken at the start of the pilot. As a result, no new casuals can be added into the pilot, and any changes to the schedule have to be managed through the new Aurion form. Both of these limitations will be addressed in future releases.
