MSUAASF - Unclassified Reappointments
ASF members that are probationary or have permanent status are reappointed yearly to establish their assignments and pay for the following year.
Per their negotiated agreement, each ASF member must be notified in writing at the beginning of each fiscal year of his/her salary, title, salary range, type of appointment, starting and ending dates of the appointment, full or part-time, probationary months worked and any other relevant special conditions of employment.
ASF members that are fixed term or externally funded must be reappointed yearly by processing a UPD. This will ensure that the funding is approved and that contract limitations are reviewed.
Human Resources will prepare a reappointment form for each ASF member which provides the attributes of the individual's appointment for the year based on the previous year.
The appropriate Vice President must review the documents to determine if the form has the appropriate information. This is a draft and must be changed if it does not meet the specifics of the ASF member's assignment. This might be a change in percent of time, duty days, sabbatical leaves or funding sources.
The appropriate Vice President should change the form if necessary and sign it for approval.
The reappointment document will be forwarded to Human Resources for review, coding and entry to the personnel payroll system (SCUPPS).
Unclassified Personnel Documents (UPD)
Interim or Acting Appointments must be processed on an Unclassified Personnel Document Form as the reappointment process is intended to expedite those that do not have exceptions or movement to another position.
Any "additional duty pay" assignments must be processed on a UPD. See Human Resources Guidelines if you have any questions in regard to appropriate use of this assignment.
Finalized Appointment Document (View Sample Document)
Human Resources will produce a SCUPPS generated finalized appointment document which details the assignment, title, appointment status, range, base salary, step placement and contracted salary for the fiscal year.
Human Resources will send the finalized appointment document to the appropriate Vice President's Office for distribution to their ASF members.
