Position Justification Process
For all “regular” position actions (new, replacement, reorgs, reclasses, FTE changes), it is critical that the initiating Department vets the concept through Dean/Director and VP level.
Upon “go ahead” of proceeding with a request, please contact Human Resources - (M.A. Watson - firstname.lastname@example.org for non-faculty matters) OR (Joan Boggis - email@example.com for faculty matters) briefly outlining the reasoning behind the request for new hire, replacement hire, position reclassification, and/or increase in position hours/schedule.
If the position is new, non-faculty position, you will need to create a Job Description and complete a PDQ (Position Description Questionnaire) and forward them to HR (firstname.lastname@example.org) for rating. Upon receipt of the rating determination and approval from your Dean/Director, contact your HR Liaison to complete the Position Justification Requisition in HireTouch.
FOR POSITION REVIEW REQUESTS:
Please conduct vetting process as outlined above, and then please contact Human Resources- (M.A. Watson - email@example.com for non-faculty matters) OR (Joan Boggis - firstname.lastname@example.org for faculty matters) briefly outlining the reasoning behind the request.
TIME FRAME: HR is contractually required to provide a response to request for review within 20 working days
Upon receipt of results of review from HR, Department decides to either:
- Proceed with reclassification
- Take away duties that are out-of-title
If process continues, HR and Finance approvals will be obtained via the Reclassification Authorization Form which is initiated in HR
HR will route to the appropriate Finance area for approval (accurate accounting information will be required.)
Approved actions will go to the Resource Review Committee for final vetting and recommendation to the President.
