09:25:49 From Katy Human (she/hers) : Downer DEPA info:
09:26:58 From Roy Miller : at least several individuals have received emails informing them that their DEPA must be completed. These of which I’m aware have already completed their DEPA forms, making such notifications useless.
09:26:58 From Gretchen Richard : Helpful DEPA FAQ’s and instructions for completing your DEPA on InsideCIRES:
09:27:49 From Katy Human (she/hers) : Thank you!
09:28:03 From Katy Human (she/hers) : With. apologies… my internet is unstable.

09:29:24 From Gretchen Richard : Thank you for the feedback, Roy. We will be sure to eliminate unnecessary DEPA emails in the future.
09:30:55 From Heather Yocum : I joined late so sorry if this was already answered, but can you tell us about how the Provost’s call for cutting 3-5% off of the next FY budget will impact CIRES? Will we likely be insulated as we were this FY? And are these cuts at the rest of the university from the pre-COVID budget or from the current (already cut) budget?
09:31:02 From Roy Miller : Thanks Gretchen, will verbally ask a question regarding DEPA soon.

09:33:33 From Jennie Bell : We were, and ARE very proud of you Waleed!
09:35:40 From Angela Knight : @ Katy re vaccinations. Yes, CU Boulder is following Boulder County and State phases –
Age is relevant. 70+ in Phase 1; 60-69 in Phase 2; 65 and up starting Feb 8; K-12 educators starting Feb 8
09:36:19 From Angela Knight : More info on CU Boulder site for vaccinations:
09:36:50 From Mike Hobbins : If we didn’t get an email (or deleted it) to confirm DEPA submission, whom should we ask to check?
09:36:51 From Joe McGlinchy : @Angela, should we abide our county of residence for COVID vaccines as they come available? for those of us who do not have residence in Boulder county
09:38:13 From Mike Hobbins : Tx.
09:38:27 From Angela Knight : Hi Joe, Yes, in terms of personal vaccine access, you should follow your county of residence.
09:38:34 From Joe McGlinchy : thanks!
09:40:20 From Katy Human (she/hers) : CU BOULDER EMAIL – this is critical

09:44:31 From Molly Hardman : Thanks
09:46:41 From Jay Patel : Thank you all
09:48:29 From Hilary : That’s in the FRPA
09:51:46 From Roy Miller : CIRES gets the funds from NOAA, not the employee.
09:54:46 From Katy Human (she/hers) : I thought it was NSF only, too
09:54:58 From Roy Miller : I also thought NSF only
09:55:28 From Christine Wiedinmyer : but grammatically the first bit is for every agency…
09:56:19 From Mike Hobbins : If we filled the DEPA out already, can we get it returned to edit should this discussion have thrown up any issues we may have missed? (Apologies if I missed this Q.)
09:57:03 From Gretchen Richard : Mike – you can log back in and complete it again
09:57:23 From Mike Hobbins : Tx
09:57:59 From Christine Wiedinmyer : it highlights how confusing this is!
09:58:11 From Katy Human (she/hers) : +1 Christine
09:58:26 From Waleed Abdalati : It also highlights how quickly I fill out forms
09:58:58 From Katy Human (she/hers) : Admin Blog:
09:59:07 From Paul E Johnston : We had to take training to do this form. Rather than CIRES do more training, have CU improve their training. This is a CU issue, not just CIRES.
09:59:24 From Christine Wiedinmyer : +1 Paul.
09:59:24 From Katy Human (she/hers) : LOL, Paul! Nice try…
10:01:13 From Christine Wiedinmyer : and as Gretchen said, any time that your situation changes, the DEPA form needs to be filled out again.
10:05:07 From Katy Human (she/hers) : Thanks, Everyone!
10:05:09 From Gilbert Pennoyer Compo : Thanks!
10:05:14 From Angela Knight : Great job Finance team re: DEPAs
