The STAR award is a great opportunity to reward employees for accomplishments contributing to UCSF’s success and in support of our PRIDE values!

UCSF HR received approval from UC Office of the President for the FY19 UCSF STAR Recognition program. The FY19 Administrative GuidelinesDepartment Implementation Overview, and Nomination Form is now available. New marterials are coming (i.e. payment calendar and training information). Please note that the deadline to submit awards for the July 18 pay date is June 29.

The following is an overview of key program changes this year:

  • Transfer of funds between Spot, Achievement, or training can be completed at the beginning of the fiscal year
    • Allows for additional funding based on area of client needs
  • Removal of ‘prior year’ project id resulting in only three budget areas:
    • STAR Achievement Award
    • STAR Spot Award
    • Training and Development

In the spirit of continuous improvement, we will continue to solicit feedback on this program and identify opportunities for improvement based on feedback. For instance, we updated the STAR Award Nomination form so that it will not require annual updates.
