New Online System for Form I-9 and E-Verification

The University of California Office of the President has selected an online system by Tracker Corporation called I-9 Complete for systemwide implementation. Adoption of this system reflects a “best practice” business process for I-9 processing and E-Verification across all UC locations, with a focus on establishing consistent nondiscriminatory work authorization practices and compliance with Federal laws.

The UCSF Payroll and Human Resources Offices are preparing for transition from completing paper Form I-9s to using Tracker I-9 Complete with the goal of implementing the new system on Monday, April 30, 2018. We have contacted campus I-9 Processors and provided information about scheduled training and system access.

About the Form I-9

Implemented as part of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, Form I-9 is used to verify the identity and confirm the employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All U.S. employers must ensure proper completion of the Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. This includes citizens and non-citizens.

About E-Verify

As a federal contractor, UCSF must verify certain new and existing employees (including employees who may be assigned through a transfer) who will be paid from a qualified federal contract/subcontract that includes the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause.

E-Verify is an internet-based system that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States. E-Verify electronically compares information contained on the Form I-9 with records contained in the Social Security Administration (SSA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) databases to verify the identity and employment eligibility of employees working on federal government contracts and subcontracts. Beginning on April 30, 2018, UCSF will use Tracker I-9 Complete for E-Verification. Information about UCSF’s E-Verify procedures is available on the Controller’s Office website.

If you have any questions about Form I-9, E-Verify, or Tracker I-9 Complete, contact the Controller's Office Solution Center.
