Research Foundation Onboarding

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs partners with the Research Foundation at CUNY in all aspects of grant or funding initiatives, this includes your hiring/rehiring arrangements. This process has been made more accessible by simply accessing the RF Personnel OnBoard System.

The Research Foundation at CUNY has implemented the RF OnBoard Personnel System, which you may use to submit your new hire/rehire paperwork.

This e-system electronically assumes nearly all your hire/rehire packet needs. Including, training videos available on the RF website. Instructions for the training videos can be found in the RF Onboard Training Video PDF.

You can also access a tutorial on how to use the RF Onboard System to submit the required information needed to place newly hired or rehired employees on the RFCUNY payroll via the RF Onboard Training Video.
