According to SAP, the manufacturer of the Fieldglass software used to manage the contingent workforce at Harvard, “SAP Fieldglass is committed to ensuring our application meets WCAG 2.0 level AA compliance” standards.
At the end of 2018, for tested functionality, which included “all primary screens that a typical user (including buyer, supplier, and worker) would be required to use,” Fieldglass was over 90% compliant with WCAG 2.0 AA standards.
SAP says that, “Fieldglass deploys 3 major releases to production each year…and we plan for accessibility improvements and...
Time reporters must enter time by Monday at noon EST for the week just ended and it must be approved by Tuesday at noon EST.
However, this process can happen earlier. Time reporters can submit hours at any time before or during the work week. Time approvers can log into Fieldglass at any time to approve submitted hours that they are certain have been worked. Time approvers need not wait until the following Tuesday to approve hours for the prior week.
Staff in participating Harvard schools/departments may identify suppliers of hourly-billed contingent labor they wish to use – generally, or for an upcoming requisition – by contacting the DZConneX PMO.
DZConneX will assess the request, and if the supplier strengthens the supply base or fills a specialized need, they will begin the enrollment and contracting process. The manager will be informed when the supplier is in the program and Fieldglass system, and ready for requisitioning. If DZConneX declines to enroll the supplier, or the supplier declines to...
The terms of DZConnex’s contract with enrolled suppliers say that DZConnex should be involved, and serve as the intermediary, in any discussion with suppliers about the needs or requirements of a Harvard hiring manager, or about potential candidates for assignment at Harvard. This is because Harvard has asked DZConneX to create and sustain a vendor-neutral, competitive sourcing environment for all requisitions.
A job order refers to the job posting or requisition. In Fieldglass, once a candidate has been selected and the terms of the assignment (e.g., start and end dates, hourly billing rate) have been mutually agreed to by the hiring manager and the supplier, the Job Order becomes a Work Order.
A work order is specific to that worker and that job. It includes an agreed-upon hourly billing rate, cost allocation, length of assignment, and other elements used to track that specific combination of person and position. Revisions to the assignment, such as extension of...
Payrolled candidates are individuals who are identified by the Harvard hiring manager and are not affiliated with one of the current suppliers. At Harvard’s request, they will be hired by one of the two Harvard-approved payrolling companies (AllSource or Checks and Balances) and would become a W-2 employee of that company.
Recruited workers are candidates sourced by DZConneX (formerly, Yoh) from the supplier pool, then interviewed, selected and hired by the Harvard hiring manager.
Pre-Identified Candidates are individuals identified by the...
There are about 75 job descriptions (templates) in Fieldglass, reflecting the roles most frequently requisitioned at Harvard. If possible, please try to use the one closest to what you need – you can “customize” it a bit by adding an attachment or filling in the Additional Job Details field.
If you need to fill a role that is significantly different,...
If you realize an assignment should be extended, submit a Work Order Revision to move the end date out. The supplier will need to accept this revision and ensure the contingent worker is available and willing to continue. When this extension increases the estimated spend, it will trigger financial re-approval.
When creating the requisition, you can change the Maximum Billing Rate to the $/hour amount you want to pay. Suppliers will only propose workers whose hourly billing rate falls at or below the rate you’ve set.
No, there is no limit. But here is a consideration.
When setting up a requisition, a hiring manager can “split code” it to an unlimited number of costing strings, to allocate the costs to multiple funding sources. These code combinations will “flow down” to the associated timesheets and be available for time reporting, but there will be no automatic allocation of the worker’s time across the funding sources. The contingent worker will need to be guided to report time correctly against each available funding source.
