Payroll Announcements


Effective November 11, 2009, the University of Tennessee is required to participate in the E-Verify program for any federal contract that contains the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clause number 52.222-54. E-verify is a free, internet-based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). It allows an employer, using information reported on an employee's Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to determine the eligibility of that employee to work in the United States. This is a requirement for prime federal contracts with a period of performance longer than 120 days and a value above the simplified acquisition threshold ($100,000). The rule covers subcontractors if a prime contract includes the clause. For subcontracts that flow from those prime contracts, the rule extends the E-Verify requirement to subcontract for services or for construction with a value over $3,000.

If you are required to E-Verify, you will be contacted by the UTSI Research Office and/or the UTSI Human Resources Office.
