ALWAYS make comments in the Initiator Comments section to inform your business center about your intentions in submitting the action. Even a one-line statement can save your business center from having to contact you with questions if they are unclear about your intentions. Everyone in the work-flow can read your comments, so use this page to your advantage.  ALL entries should begin with the date and your first initial and last name:

Examples:  

  • 11/15/11 R. Selleck:  This search has an advertising deadline of 12/01/11 in order to be placed in the quarterly journal.  We would like this position posted to the OSU web site for 90 days.
  • 11/01/11 R. Clooney:  This Update action is being submitted in order to revise the duties of this position and increase the FTE from .80 to 1.0.

FOR ALL FILL ACTIONS – State how many days you intend to advertise your position.  Delays in processing your action and creating your posting will cause changes in your posting open and close dates, so if your business center knows and understands your intentions regarding the length of your posting, they will adjust the open and close date accordingly.  Classified positions must be posted a minimum of 7 business days, and unclassified positions should typically be posted for 30 days although the minimum posting period is 14 days.  If you have identified a fixed closing date, TELL your business center!  

If this is a non-competitive Waiver of Search for an unclassified position, add a statement declaring that you intend to seek permission from the Office of Equity & Inclusion to waive the regular competitive search process.

If this is an accelerated search (one lasting 13 days or less) for an unclassified position, add a statement declaring that you intend to seek permission from the BC HR Manager to conduct an accelerated search.
