Review Schedule for Operational Requests


Some operational requests might be approved right away, for example:

  • Staff replacements that are completely funded by the current position.
  • Grant funded positions (new or replacement) for which the Office of Sponsored Programs attests to the availability of funds.
  • Construction projects for which funds are available.
  • Faculty and/or staff transfers or terminations.
  • Occasionally, one-time requests for money (not personnel) that the university can fund with available reserves.

Other requests are "batched" and reviewed at specified times during the year, according to the following schedule:
