The Office of Budget and Finance is open for business, although we are working remotely. Please continue doing business with us as usual, but be aware that most of us do not forward our office phones. Email or chat (via Microsoft Teams) may be the best way to reach us. Additional announcements relevant to a specific department may be found on that department’s home page.
Most personnel actions can be initiated using the electronic Personnel Action Request (ePAR) process. ePARs are electronic forms that facilitate the request and approval of common personnel actions such as hiring, transfers, funding updates, and terminations. ePAR Actions can be initiated through the Galaxy portal, under Gemini HR > Payroll and Compensation.
The ePAR tool continues to evolve. Enhancements are made based on user feedback or to correct issues. These changes will be documented here. If you’d like to suggest an enhancement, please email [email protected].
A slight adjustment to the field layout on Job Attribute Change, New Appointment, and Change Funding Sources forms ensures that standard hours and FTE are always in sync, and that the Full/Part time status is updated automatically.
Fields with data changes are now highlighted in yellow.
Additional fields are displayed in the funding grid for chartfield details.
