Temporary Expanded Use of IPDA Funds

January 11, 2021 / PSU-AAUP

A reminder that the Collective Bargaining team negotiated and PSU-AAUP members just approved an MOA that allows us to use our IPDA funds for computers, computer peripherals, accessories, network components, office furniture and other items that we believe will be helpful to support your work during the pandemic. Items purchased will remain the property of the University and we are to bring those items to campus when we are no longer working remotely. 

Members will also be permitted to use IPDA funds to hire hourly non-GA student workers performing non-graduate employee work. Student workers could be hired to assist the faculty and/or staff with their workload. Members must work with their Departments to identify and hire student workers using existing policies and procedures. 

We hope this helps and do let us know if you have any questions about this MOA.
