Onboarding Steps to be Followed

Medical Campus Charles River Campus
1)  If your Terrier Temp needs: a BUID# (required for Lab Safety Training), a BU email, or a Terrier Card (necessary for building access):

  1. Create a “Non-Compensated” position in SAP. (OM)

    • Job = 20001553 “Non-Compensated Staff”
    • Long Position Name:
      • Terrier Temp
  2. Enter the individual’s information into the non-compensated position you created in SAP (PA).
  3. Once the individual is moved into this position in SAP, the system will automatically generate a UID number. This number will be available in your worklist.
  4. Request a BU email address by completing this form: www.bu.edu/tech/services/support/iam/authentication/kerberos/kerberos
  5. To obtain Terrier Card, individual must visit the Public Safety Department office after the BUID# has been automatically issued in step #3 above. Affiliation on their card will state “Guest”.

Note: all medical campus Terrier Temps must be hired into BUworks (SAP) as non-compensated.

1a) If your Terrier Temp needs just a BUID# and BU email: request a BU email address by completing this form: www.bu.edu/tech/services/support/iam/authentication/kerberos/kerberos

1b) If your Terrier Temp needs just a Terrier Card (for building access), this form must be completed and brought to HR at 25 Buick Street (2nd Floor), Boston, MA 02215.

1c) If your Terrier Temp needs access to BUworks/SAP, do not complete step 1a or 1b until below steps are completed (no Terrier Card request form is required if you hire into BUworks), and:

2) If the Terrier Temp will be in a Laboratory Setting:

  • Laboratory Safety Training

Laboratory safety training can be completed in the RIMS website. Typically, individuals will need to take the Universal, BSL1 and BSL2 courses and pass the quiz. Because the system takes few days to update the records, we recommend individualssend a screen shot showing their quiz results to the IBC office at ibc@bu.edu or the IACUC office at iacuc@bu.edu.

  • ROHP clearance

Please download the Initial Health questionnaire (if the individual has never completed this form before) or the Annual Health Questionnaire (if the individual has provided this information previously). The PI is responsible for completing the first page of the form regarding general information of the lab and the type of biological exposure the volunteer will encounter. The volunteer should enter his/her personal information then email the completed form to the ROHP at rohp@bu.edu.

The IBC and ROHP offices will process these applications as quickly as feasible. If you have any questions, please contact the IBC at ibc@bu.edu (617-638-4531), the IACUC at iacuc@bu.edu (617-638-4596) or the ROHP at rohp@bu.edu (617-414-7647).
