What is UC OATS?

The UC Outside Activity Tracking System (UC OATS) is a multi-campus collaboration formed to facilitate the reporting and tracking of Outside Professional Activities (OPA) and identify potential cases of Conflict of Commitment (COC). UC OATS is an interactive, web-based application that enables faculty to comply with the University of California, Conflict of Commitment policies outlined in the Academic Personnel Manual (APM).

In UC OATS faculty report outside professional activities, request prior approval, report effort/income, and complete annual certification.
