Five Personnel Policies for Staff Members (PPSM) were revised and recently issued by President Napolitano:  

  • PPSM-1 General Provisions provides direction and authority regarding personnel policies that apply to staff employees.  
  • PPSM-2 Definition of Terms provides detailed information on certain terms that are used within personnel policies that apply to staff employees. 
  • PPSM-64 Termination and Job Abandonment describes separation from employment due to job abandonment and the process for terminating career employees in the Professional & Support Staff (PSS) and Managers & Senior Professionals (MSP) personnel groups who are not Officers of the University. The revised policy is a consolidation of three existing policies— PPSM-64 Termination of Career Employees – Professional & Support Staff; PPSM-65 Termination of Career Employees – Managers & Senior Professionals, Salary Grades I through VII; and PPSM-67 Termination of Career Employees – Managers and Senior Professionals, Salary Grades VII and IX — into one policy document. 
  • PPSM-70 Complaint Resolution provides direction and authority to resolve complaints made by staff employees. The revised policy is a consolidation of two existing policies— PPSM-70 Complaint Resolution and PPSM-71 Resolution of Concerns – Managers and Senior Professionals, Salary Grades VIII and IX— into one policy document. 
  • PPSM-82 Conflict of Interest addresses activities that may be considered to be a conflict of interest for staff employees. 

These policies underwent review to bring into compliance with the three-year policy review requirement and the Working Smarter directive to combine policies where appropriate. The policies are published online.
