Inter-Institutional Overloads

An Inter-Institutional Overload occurs when an individual holding an appointment at one UW institution (Institution A) exceeds 100% employment by providing services to another UW institution (Institution B). Prior approval by both institutions is required for services that exceed $1,000 or services that are recurring. Institution B prepares the Inter-Institutional Employment Overload Request Form and forwards to Institution A to review.  If both institutions approve, Institution B establishes a separate appointment with an appropriate position title and pays the employee on the monthly payroll.

For non-recurring services that are less than $1,000, Institution B establishes a separate appointment with an appropriate title and payrolls the employee directly on the monthly payroll.  No overload approval is required.

PLEASE NOTE: If Institution B intends to transfer funds to Institution A as a part-of-load payment for the employee’s services, an Inter-Institutional Agreement (IIA) should be processed using an Inter-Institutional Agreement (IIA) Form, not an Inter-Institutional Employment Overload Request Form.
