On July 1, 2013, UCSF required the use of a web-based tool called AP Recruit to facilitate the academic recruitment process. Searches initiated prior to July 1, 2013, used a campus-based system, “Academic Demographics System” (ADS). To avoid disruption in ongoing searches, ADS has run concurrently with AP Recruit for the past year. 

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) recently concluded a compliance evaluation of UCSF’s employment practices. While the findings found no evidence of discrimination, UCSF was found to be non-compliant with some technical requirements around applicant tracking and record keeping. OFCCP reporting requirements for record keeping and applicant tracking can only be met using AP Recruit and therefore it is necessary that we discontinue the use of ADS. Effective November 30, 2014, the ADS system will be retired and all academic recruitments currently open within ADS will be deactivated unless action is taken.
