The Budget Office is responsible for reviewing payroll commitments to ensure consistency with fiscal year financial plans and budgeted payroll resources.  Appointments of a continuing nature are generally paid on an annual salary rate basis from "Personal Service".  Approval to hire on a Personal Service position is obtained using the  'Position Release' process and a Position Release approval must be obtained prior to initiating the search and appointment process.  Appointments of a temporary nature are paid using pay modes other than annual salary rate and are paid from "Temporary Service".  In both instances sufficient budget allocation should be in place prior to the payroll commitment. 

Please contact the Budget Office concerning the Position Release approval process or if there are any questions concerning budgetary resources for payroll commitments.
