HRIS Employees Without Reappointments Report Available Sept. 22 With Corrections Due Sept. 29

The HRIS Employees Without Reappointments Report for institutions of higher education will be available to download on Friday, Sept. 22.

For each employee listed on the report, one of the following must be added in HRIS:

  • Reappointment for fiscal 2018 (effective Sept. 1, 2017)

    –OR–

  • Termination

All employee information listed on the report must be corrected by close of business Friday, Sept. 29. It is important to reconcile the report information with your institution’s records to ensure the information in HRIS is accurate. HRIS uses this information to generate the Equal Employment Opportunity Report, Annual Report (Statewide Hiring Practices for the Fiscal Year) and Veteran Workforce Summary Report.

Fiscal Management will rerun the report weekly until all necessary corrections are made.

For more information on the reappointment process, see HRIS Higher Education Reporting Procedures for Reappointments (FPP M.003) or contact your HRIS representative.

Note: Only institutions that have employees with reappointments will receive a report.
