Agreements for services are a legally binding contract between the College and an individual/company; it is for this reason that we must ensure that they are properly completed and processed.
All agreement for services must include, at a minimum, the following information in order to move forward to the next level of review, and ultimately to the Campus President, Vice Provost, or Provost as required for final approval. Please make sure of the following before the agreement is sent forward:
For clarification, here is the current College signature approval workflow with names and titles accordingly (to be used in the “For Miami Dade College Use Only” section):

This process should be completed, at least two (2) weeks prior to the agreement becoming effective and services beginning.
Also, per Purchasing Department instructions:
Remember that per College Policy VI-30 / Procedure 6300 – we cannot engage in an agreement for services with any current part-time or full-time employee and/or family members of an employee under any circumstances.
While we understand that we are working in a very fast-pace environment, this should never be an excuse not to put our best efforts in maintaining a professional image, especially when it comes to legally binding documents. Please be advised that any agreement for services that does not comply with these requirements will be returned to the originator immediately. Any person approving an agreement for services who is not authorized may be personally liable to the individual or company.

An RPA is the official document, submitted to Human Resources, to officially hire a new employee into a specific job.
The "Empl Rcd" is the result of a processed RPA for a specific job or purpose. This is how the system ensures that the person is authorized to work and gets paid at the correct rate for that specific job assignment.
Selecting the wrong Empl Rcd for an assignment, may result in one of the following:
No. This is against College policy and procedure. All employees must be officially hired before they begin to work. Please contact your HR - Employee Services Liaison and Faculty Initiatives for advise in case of emergency.
Instructional assignments are considered “exempt” jobs; therefore Support "Non-exempt" employees cannot be hired as instructors beause of the different job classifications (refer to Procedure 2832 - Sec. IV - 2, b). The only exception to this rule are those employees classified as "Intervention Specialist" which are required to teach SLS courses as part of their job duties.
In keeping with the accreditation standards set forth by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the College must ensure that all faculty teaching credit classes have the academic preparation and experience necessary to deliver high-quality education.
At a minimum, faculty teaching credit courses must:
This may be happening because the “Instructor/Advisor Table” information is not up-to-date, for that specific instructor.
Unfortunately, the Instructor Workload module does not allow for this to happen. Course assignments MUST be done individually in the class assignment screen for the specific course.
No, the point limitation rules remain in place. You will find the information about point limitations in the following link: Annual Point Limitations
The Instructor Workload module does not have programmed hard-stops preventing assignments from exceeding the point limitation rules. Therefore, it's recommended that you run this report at least once a week, especially when processing new assignments that affect the current term.
Stacked – These are courses in which students meet for a class, at the same time with the same instructor, but at different levels of instruction.
Combined – These are courses with lecture and lab instruction meeting on different patterns.
No. While course assignments, regardless of their nature (credit, non-credit, PSAV) will always be assigned to the instructor in Instructor Workload, non-credit courses are not assigned points in Instructor Workload because they are paid on an hourly basis thru Time and Labor in MDConnect.
The number of paychecks is based on the beginning and end dates of the course.
An overload is any instructional related assignment which increases the contractually required workload above 62 points. This could be the result of adding additional courses or increasing the workload of a course(s) due to a higher number of students registered in the course(s).
In order for an overload to be viable, the instructor workload must equal 63 points or higher; this is because of the (+/- 2) rule.
The main reason is to prevent overpayments.
While the College selects the courses that will be available for selection as overloads, the decision to designate those overload points--for payment or banking--is the sole responsibility of the faculty member.
Yes, they can.
No, adjunct faculty DO NOT qualify for overloads because of their part-time status.
Yes, full-time faculty members may be deducted hours for an overload ONLY when they are absent due to illness (SICK) or personal reasons. This is also applicable to points that have been selected for banking.
No. The only time we can deduct hours for overload is when the faculty member is out sick, or for personal reasons.
No. Since full-time faculty schedules do not necessarily conform to the typical 7.0 hrs/per day schedule, their absence requests MUST always be submitted as “partial days.” The total of hours submitted in the request MUST ONLY REFLECT INLOAD hours (including office and campus hours). Overload hours CANNOT be deducted using an absence request.
Yes, they can. The switch will only apply to the remaining points after the switch has been made. Notice that…
No. Full-time faculty selected their overloads, during the class selection process, and once their courses have been selected they cannot change them unless there are extenuating circumstances.
Banked Points are overload points that are placed on hold for use at a later time in lieu of payment. Therefore, these points are not “paid out” during the term they are earned.
The use of banked points MUST be discussed and pre-approved between the faculty member, Chairperson, and the Dean of Faculty. Banked points are used for the following:
Full-time faculty will be able to see this information in their respective “Faculty Self Service” tab in MDConnect.
MDConnect is an extremely detailed system, so basically everything that you do in the system creates a record. Ghost records occur when the instructor--that was originally assigned to the course--is NOT deleted from the course, but basically overwritten by entering the new instructor's information on top of the original instructor.
The key to this specific scenario is that the current instructor was never intended to be assigned to that class. When removing an instructor from a class, you MUST DELETE the instructor, then save that deletion. NEVER override the current instructor by just adding the new instructor's information in place of the original one; this WILL create a ghost record.
The course will be treated as a “team taught” course.
No. Only the College administration has the authority to cancel classes.
If the absence is scheduled in advance, it is the instructor's responsibility to make sure that a substitute instructor is scheduled to take over the class during his/her absence(s).
If the instructor calls-in sick, then the Department Chairperson should make a decision on the matter.
A substitution occurs when the instructor of record is not available to teach, on a specific date, and another instructor “steps-in” to make sure the students receive the instruction of the day.
By all means substitutions are classes. Therefore, the person performing the substitution MUST be properly credentialed and qualified to teach the specific course.
No. RPAs are not needed for substitute pay because the system is programmed to recognize the different pay rates based on the employee classification.
The only time you will need an RPA is when hiring a person exclusively to perform as a substitute instructor, and the employee WILL NOT have any additional positions in the College.
There's a fixed rate of $16.33 per hour, except for full-time faculty. Per UFMDC and MDC agreement, full time faculty are paid at a fixed rate of $25.00 per hour.
Each substitution date, MUST be entered as a separate entry, regardless of repeating class number.
You must have the following in consideration:
Currently, the system is scheduled to run the update process twice a day.
No. Support Non-Exempt employees (SNE) CANNOT be used as substitute instructors, because of the "non-exempt" job classification.
The Quick Copy Center is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM - 4:30 PM.
No, hours are Monday through Friday from from 7:00 AM - 4:30 PM.
