All personnel actions concerning compensation for A&P and Classified staff within the college must receive approval prior to processing in the system. CNS has worked with Human Resource Services to establish a process for coordination between the department, Dean's Office, HRS, and the Provost Office when applicable.

For the foreseeable future, the CNS Dean's Office is officially setting a regular reclassification and salary increase cycle policy for Classified staff and Administrative & Professional staff. This does not include merit increases, which are regulated at the University Administration level.

September 1 and March 1 will be the effective dates for reclassification, equity, and Permanent Additional Duties increases, with variable deadlines for each cycle. The typical timeframe will be a deadline of one month prior to the effective date, but advance notice will be given before each cycle. Departments should plan personnel and funding actions according to these dates. Off-cycle requests for permanent additional duties or equity are generally not allowed by the Dean's Office. Temporary additional duties and counter offers are handled case-by-case.


To initiate the following personnel actions, use the Personnel Action Form (PAF). Fill in all appropriate information, obtain departmental signature approvals, and submit via email to personnel@cns.utexas.edu. CNS HR staff will coordinate with the department, Dean, and other central business offices as needed. Once all signature approvals have been obtained on the PAF, the personnel action can be processed.
