Instructions - Pre-Approval Conversations

Review the pre-submission conversation(s) and determine with whom you should speak.

Make sure to have these pre-approval conversations up front to work on the position description, determine the position's FTE, and obtain preliminary approval from DLT (if base-funded in any way) to move forward with the position. This will likely involved collaboration via email, Zoom, Teams, and scheduled meetings. Please budget sufficient time for this portion of the process.

If you have any questions, please contact
  1. Talk with your Direct Supervisor - discuss how to get the recruitment started, what type of position it could be, etc.
  2. Talk with the Budgetary Authority for the position - discuss funding for the position, FTE, the position description.
  3. If the position is base-funded in any way (e.g. 104, 143, etc.) it requires DLT Approval
