The PAF must be
used for all faculty, staff and temporary staff personnel actions
(e.g., initial appointment, revised appointment, status change, salary
adjustment, promotion, demotion, reclassification, title change, one
time payment, directory information change).
For mid-year changes,
department heads and vice presidents will receive copies of the signed
PAF, and employees will receive a "Personnel Action Confirmation"
from the Office of Human Resources. (The offer letter constitutes
a new employee's official appointment, and the April 1 contracts (faculty)
and June 30 salary notification letters (staff) constitute the ongoing,
year-to-year appointment process for faculty and staff.)
The PAF is always
originated by the department head/dean and then routed according to
signature authority policy.
signatures for the personnel action have been obtained, the PAF is
sent immediately to Human Resources where pay and budget details (if
applicable) are checked and coordinated, changes are made, and confirmations
PAFs, which require
budget transactions must be routed with a completed and signed budget,
change request form stapled to the PAF. PAFs requiring budget changes,
without a signed budget transfer attached will be routed back to the
department head/dean for completion.

forms are available online at http://www.spu.edu/depts/hr/forms/HRformsindex.htm.
