Initiation and Authorization
To initiate and seek authorization for a Target of Opportunity/Recruitment Waiver Hire, the unit must generate a requisition in PeopleAdmin for review by the Office of Financial Analysis and Budgeting (FAB) and authorization from the Office of the Provost. This electronic requisition must be approved by the Dean's Office, FAB, and the Office of the Provost before any further action is taken.
After the Opportunity Hire has been approved, the following appointment paperwork must be prepared:
- Appointment Letter
- Draft appointment letters that deviate from the approved templates must be reviewed by Faculty Services prior to obtaining signature
- Personnel Action Set-Up Form
- Salary Distribution Form
- Addressed Envelope
Once the approved appointment letter has been signed by the Chair and Dean, route it and the above materials to Human Resources (HR). HR will forward the materials to the Provost's Office - Faculty Services for review and signature by the Provost.
When the candidate has signed the appointment letter and returned it to the Dean, the Dean should forward a copy to Faculty Services.
