Personnel actions for active employees should be submitted via ePAF or PAF:
Please refer to this detailed list of ePAF transactions available.
All other transactions should be submitted with a PAF form via Google Drive. Please refer to the instructional documentation for submitting PAFs. Transactions include, but are not limited to:
The College funds annual salary increases that have been approved by the Board of Trustees for Faculty, Full-Time Instructional and Professional Staff whose salaries are charged to the operating budget. Part-time positions are not eligible for the annual salary increase.
Annual salary increase requests for Full Time Faculty and Full Time Professional Staff, whose salaries are charged to non-operating budgets, should be submitted via a Salary or Rate Update, MODJB3 ePAF or a Salary Adjustment – Faculty/FT Lecturer, MODJB1 ePAF after ensuring the budget is in place.
All other salary increases and promotions on the operating budget need to be approved by Cabinet before being approved by the Office of the Budget and Planning.
For all Full Time Professional salary increases and new hires charged to operating indices, the College will provide the necessary funding within the position’s salary range, as determined by Human Resources. If the increase is above the range, the department will be responsible for funding the additional salary and fringe by submitting a budget transfer to the Office of Budget and Planning.
The funding for salary increases and related fringe may be established through one of the following methods:
Salary savings derived from employee departures and unfilled positions are monitored and managed by the Office of Budget and Planning.
Fringe savings may not be allocated to other budget lines under any circumstances.
Departments may request salary savings be transferred to cover the costs of backfilling a vacant position (or duties thereof). The amount of salary savings available for use is determined by the Office of the Provost for instructional positions and the Office of Budget and Planning for non-instructional positions.
Salary savings may differ from what appears in Banner. Inquire with the Office of Budget and Planning for details.
The summer budget is separate from the academic year and covers only summer instructional costs (61x9 accounts).
The Office of Budget and Planning receives allocation information from the Office of the Provost including, course, instructor, index, account, and amount before the summer semester begins and prior to the approval of PAFs or ePAFs. This allocation is loaded into Banner, making the funds available to the departments.
Funding for any courses and instructors that were not part of the Office of the Provost’s allocation must be submitted through a Budget Transfer in conjunction with the submission of the PAF or ePAF.
Any unspent funds allocated to departments for summer instructional salaries cannot be redistributed without approval of the Office of the Provost.
The purpose of the Revision of Labor Distribution Form is to request a revision to a salary distribution already processed. This form is required when the allocation of salary paid to an employee must be transferred from a given budget line to another.
Any request to update future salary distributions should be submitted via a Labor Distribution Change (MODJB2) ePAF.
Changes to more than one appointment should be filled out on separate forms.
