We will use the Staff series of titles for all budget appointments and use local descriptive titles as needed.

Exceptions:

Exceptions to the above guidelines will be dealt with by the Office of Human Resources on a case by case basis. Requests for exceptions must be firmly based on the quantified unavailability of qualified candidates who possess the required minimum qualifications for professional staff positions. Consideration will also be made in such instances where temporary staff, who do not meet the required minimum qualification, have been performing satisfactorily in similar positions at full performance
