ACTING appointments are those positions filled on a temporary basis to replace a regular unclassified employee on leave. The appointment method is to place the acting employee on an academic wage appointment, NOT a regular unclassified appointment.
INTERIM appointments are those positions filled on a temporary basis while a search is being conducted or reorganization is taking place. They require approval from the Office of Equity & Inclusion if you want to place someone into the position through a non-competitive process. Follow the detailed instructions for completing a non-competitive search at http://oregonstate.edu/dept/affact/recruitment-hiring-and-outreach. You must submit a non-competitive “fill” action through the online recruitment system. Obtain permission from OEI before you submit your action to your business center.
