President Stokes Approves Minor Revisions to Two Policies

December 6, 2018

On December 5, President Stokes approved minor revisions to two administrative policies, using the abbreviated process for policy review outlined in Section 5.1 of University Administrative Policy (UAP) 1100 (“Development and Approval of University Policies”). Descriptions of the policy changes are provided below.

UAP 3210 (“Recruitment and Hiring”)

  • Section 10 was revised by the Vice President for Human Resources (process owner) and the Division of Human Resources, to indicate that any requests for exceptions to the policy must route through the Vice President for Human Resources to the University President or appropriate executive vice president or designee.

UAP 4020 (“New Employee Relocation Allowance”) - revised title

  • This policy was revised by the University Controller and the HSC Executive Officer for Finance and Administration (joint process owners), in response to tax law changes in 2018 regarding moving expenses. All moving expenses are now reported as taxable income, whether paid to the employee as a relocation allowance or paid directly to a moving carrier. The title of the policy is revised from “Moving Expenses” to “New Employee Relocation Allowance.”
