Formal Review of Staff Policy (PPSM 21) – Selection and Appointment


Re: Formal Review of Staff Policy (PPSM 21) – Selection and Appointment

Dear Colleagues:

The University of California Office of the President is proposing revisions to Staff Policy 21 – Appointment, including a title change to “Selection and Appointment.”

The revisions are intended to clarify special requirements related to the selection and appointment process. There is expanded content on background checks, including a new section on how to review and assess the background check results, and a new section on reference checks.

The policy applies to staff employees, including those in the Professional & Support Staff personnel program, Managers & Senior Professionals, and positions in the Senior Management Group.

The proposed policy is posted on UCnet.

Because this is a formal review, comments from employees are encouraged and will be considered before a final policy is adopted. We would appreciate your assistance in circulating the draft to policy-covered staff in your organization.

Questions and comments from campus departments and staff should be directed to Director Linda Gaddie at and from the Health System to Director Maure Gardner at by Tuesday, February 16, 2016.
