Requisition Approval


Once your requisition has been entered into UWHIRES, it then needs approval from the appropriate people in your department and Human Resources. The approval process begins in UWHIRES.


To get your requisition approved:

  1. Initiate the approval process by opening your requisition in UWHIRES and clicking "Edit Requisition."
  2. In the "Job Status" field, choose "Pending Approval" from the drop down menu.
  3. Click "Save."

The first person on your approver list is notified of the request for approval via email. Once the first approver has completed their approval, an email will be sent to the second approver. This will continue until all approvers have approved the requisition.

Your employment specialist is the final approver on all requisitions and will forward the requisition to Compensation when required.

Once the employment specialist approves the requisition, the requisition will switch to the "Open and Approved" status. Your employment specialist then posts the position to the UW employment web site where applicants can apply.

If there are additional places your position will be advertised, your employment specialist will post there, as well.
