Authorization to Hire Faculty and Staff Process

Authorization to Hire Faculty and Staff Process

All new position requests and requests for refilling vacant positions for all faculty, staff and temporaries must be approved prior to beginning the recruitment process, regardless of funding source.  Student workers do not have to go through this process.  Completing this form by the department indicates that funding is available by the requesting unit.  An Authorization to Hire form should be completed by the department head.  The request will be routed to the respective LFO/Reviewer and Dean/VP for review and approval. The request will then be routed to the EVPHA Office for review/approval. If the position will be funded with any general funds, the request will also be routed to the Budget Advisory Committee and the Executive Vice President and University Provost.
