Supervisor's checklist for new faculty and staff

  1. Computer Hardware and Software

    1. Check that the new employee's computer is configured to be able to carry out work responsibilities. See Computing Purchases: Buy Institutional for recommended configurations for departments, colleges and administrative units, and the purchase of hardware, software and peripherals for the institution.
    2. Each office computer needs an IP number. Call 831-6041 to obtain or verify the correct IP number for the new employee's computer.
    3. Contact your departmental server administrator if the employee needs to access a departmental server or network printer.
    4. If you are purchasing a computer, have your departmental computer support person set it up or submit an IT Support Center: Help Request for computer setup.
  2. System Access and Authorization

    1. Verify with your HR liaison that the new permanent employee is in the Human Resources System and have the employee activate their account.
      A UDelNet account is automatically created two days after the employee is entered into the Human Resources System.
    2. Direct the permanent employee to obtain an ID card.
    3. For a non-permanent employee, complete the UDelNet Account Request.
    4. Does the new employee require access to UD Administrative Systems?
      • UD Student Information (UDSIS)
      • UD Human Resources
      • UD Financial Systems
      If so, complete the required web form(s) (Note: Login required).
  3. Phone and Voicemail

    1. If the employee requires a new phone set or phone line, send a request to Telephone Services. Include a contact name and the location for the new service.
    2. If an existing phone is being used, request that the voice mailbox be reinitialized.
  4. Does the new employee have computing support responsibilities in your department?

    1. Please complete an IT Support Center: Help Request, listing his/her name and the department(s) supported.
  5. Review the New Faculty/Staff Checklist with the employee.
