NOTE: The implementation of SIMBA requires the review of many University Human Resource Policies and Guidelines. After consultation with key constituencies, work has been underway to update, consolidate, and improve our policies and guidelines to better serve the Penn State community. However, please be aware that due to the volume of the impacted policies and guidelines, not all policies are currently updated to reflect changes which have been communicated; however, the policies will be updated soon and have appropriate and applicable effective dates listed. We appreciate your patience as we work through this review process. Any questions can be directed to HR Services at 814-865-1473 or submit an inquiry via WorkLion.
To define the use of and provide a procedure to record and update correct office addresses and telephone numbers for each employee.
An official, published office address and telephone number listing is required for all faculty and staff, unless there are extenuating circumstances as to why this information should not be published. The primary uses of the office address and telephone directory information are as follows:
- To establish and maintain, for University mailings, centralized University address information on all faculty and staff members. These addresses are used for mailings such as employee check stubs, announcement of employee insurance changes, and so forth.
- To facilitate all forms of intra-University communication via telephone and the University's Mail Service.
Employees may elect to publish either office information only, or office and home information. The Human Resources Representative enters the information with the IBIS NAPP (new appointment form) for a new employee, or via IBIS UADR to update information that already has been entered.
Title changes can be made by submitting the appropriate IBIS form.
The following address changes are not covered by UADR (Office Address and Telephone Number Update Function):
- To update home address for University records as shown on W-4 income tax forms.
The UADR function will update the official address and phone information in the Ph Directory. Address and/or phone number changes done by 5:00 PM on Friday will be updated in the directory by the following Wednesday.
Changes to the employee's personal information (unofficial) such as fax number, additional phone number, nickname, pager, etc., in the Ph Directory can be made by the employee by updating the "Edit Your Phone Directory Entry". Information the employee cannot change themselves is name, ID, office phone and address, department and title.
