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.
