E-Verify Compliance Procedures

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.

Direct Deposit Information

As of February 9, 2022, the UT System requires the setting up and changing of direct deposit bank information be made through the self-service portion of the IRIS portal OR the secure direct deposit website.  Your NetID and password are required to access the sites.
Both sites require the use of dual factor authentication.

Once signed into the web application, select the correct payroll cycle. Enter the bank routing number and account number of the primary account, reenter the primary bank account number, select a checking/savings preference and upload a picture or pdf of a cancelled check or letter from the bank verifying the account number. If you wish to change the secondary account or travel bank, enter the primary account details and enter the secondary and/or travel bank details and upload the required information.

If you have questions, please contact Courtney Maricle-Frazier in the UTSI Human Resources Office.
