Managing Persons of Interest (POI) at Harvard
Beginning in July 2021, Harvard will be making significant changes to better manage POI roles at the University.
- We are launching a new web application to enable users to more effectively manage POIs. The POI Portal is expected to launch this summer and will streamline the business process for creating, maintaining and reporting on POIs.
- We are publishing a new POI Policy that clarifies the responsibilities individuals and departments sponsoring POIs possess for the stewardship of POI data at the University and the use of access granted to individuals by their action.
- We defined a new business process to better support POI creation and management and enhance accountability and transparency for sponsors, administrators, schools and units.
- We overhauled the list of POI Role Types to better align with business needs, adding new role types, providing improved descriptions and examples, and clarifying eligibility for services
We recognize that this will mean adopting new practices and technology and we appreciate the effort and cooperation of sponsors and administrators in supporting this change.
