Please note: The University of Iowa is required to use E-Verify, a program to electronically verify the Social Security number and employment authorization for employees working on projects funded by federal contracts that include the E-Verify FAR clause.

  • For new contracts with existing University employees, these employees must be E-Verified within ninety (90) days of the contract being signed. (An exception exists for University employees hired prior to November 6, 1986.)
  • For existing University employees who are added to the project team sometime after the federal contract/project has started, E-Verify must be initiated within thirty (30) days of the date of assignment.
  • For employees who are being newly hired by the University to work on a covered federal contract, E-Verify must be initiated within three (3) business days of that employee's date of hire.

The I-9 Management online application must be used to complete and submit both I-9's and E-Verify. Paper copies of form I-9 are not accepted. To access the I-9 Management system go to UI Home Page, choose Self Service and then select the External Links tab which will give you the link directly to the I-9 Management software application. More information about I-9 express and I-9's is available on the I-9 Information page.
