A Personnel Action Form (PAF) must be completed and signed by the hiring authority in order to get a new employee entered into the HR/payroll system. For faculty and exempt employees, the search must first be approved by EO&D. Faculty searches must also be approved by the Provost. Then, along with the PAF, submit an Offer and Acceptance Form, and a resume. Please check with your executive area’s AO on the specific procedures and requirements for necessary forms and approvals in your executive area.
