Employee Prefeed Overview

Prefeed: upcoming rollout

CAT-HR will become UCAT Prefeed:

  • the system that enables employees --staff, faculty, academics, and postdocs-- to be fed into our central person registry (MCDB) so that they can claim their CNetID, and utilize University services such as:

    • obtaining a UChicago Card

    • using UChicago Time

  • …on the day they begin working at the University.

  • Prefeed: upcoming rollout

    • For those who are TAGs (Trusted Agents)…during transition, TAG/AAMS will still be used for look-up details and other functionality

    • AAMS will eventually be replaced by UCAT

    Prefeed: Placeholder SSN

    Prefeed: Placeholder SSN

    I, [Operator Name], verify that this employee informed me that s/he does not have a SSN and is not a US Citizen and requires the creation of a temporary, university-generated placeholder code until the employee provides an SSN. An email will be sent to Central Human Resources with my name and this record's information as I have entered it.

    Email is sent to HR with the new record’s placeholder#

    You as the operator are cc’d

    Generate a Placeholder SSN

    If you generate a Placeholder SSN, the label changes to ‘Generate’

    & the fields are grayed out

    The Placeholder SSN is not generated until you click ‘Save’

    Placeholder Email to HR
