Adding or Maintaining a Person of Interest (POI) in HRS
OverviewA Person of Interest (POI) record is added to HRS for individuals who have an affiliation with a UW institution but are not considered employees, are not paid, and do not need reimbursement of expenses by the institution. These may include consultants, emeritus faculty, Non-UW Time Approvers for Time and Labor (T&L), Non-UW Interviewers, or other individuals requiring an affiliation with a UW institution other than employer-employee. This document explains how to add a person to HRS and assign a Person of Interest (POI) relationship, how to inactivate a POI relationship, as well as how to add additional POI relationship types to an existing person in HRS.
To avoid creating duplicate person IDs it is important to search for an existing record. See the following user procedure:
- Persons of Interest will be assigned Empl IDs. Empl IDs serve as the unique identifier for all employees and POIs in HRS.

Before creating any new person in HRS, you must search HRS to ensure the person is unique/new to the system. Follow all steps in Searching for Existing Person in HRS.
