Budget Relationships at UNO
Interactions between the Human Resource (HR) Office and the Budget Office occur on a daily basis. Several examples of interaction between the offices are listed here.
Position Creation and Reclassification
In the event a new position is created, a new position number is assigned by the Budget Office and provided to the department and HR (if a classification is required).
If a position is reclassified, details of the changes are communicated to the department. After appropriate paperwork is submitted to HR for processing, the Budget Office verifies the attributes and updates the position accordingly.
Should the base salary of the position differ from the permanent budget, or if the position is newly created, the Budget Office contacts the initiating department for the funding offset.
Employee Self Service (ESS)
The Budget Office is responsible for maintaining Employee Self Service (ESS) relationships. ESS relationships are based on position number of the position holder and have one approver per relationship.
ESS relationships are:
- Reports to: the person responsible for completing the performance evaluation on the position holder
- Leave approver: the person responsible for approving leave requests
- Travel approver: the person responsible for approving travel
- Time approver: the person responsible for approving electronic timesheets
A request for relationship change form should be completed, and sent to the Budget Office.
When a posting is created in PeopleAdmin, a workflow approval process is facilitated. The Budget Office’s role is to review the data of the position recruitment and verify accuracy of position details. Additionally, the Budget Office determines the availability and accuracy of funds listed.
