(Approved by the Executive Vice President by authority of Executive Order No. 5)
It is the purpose of this policy to establish that an employing official may designate a classified non-union position vacancy as available only to "organizational unit promotion candidates." This policy:
Any administrative entity with discrete budget authority is considered an "organizational unit" for promotion purposes. A large organizational unit can be made up of smaller organizational units. Examples of organizational units include, but are not limited to: a school, college, department, division, administrative unit, medical center, or operational department within a medical center.
A promotional candidate is a permanent classified non-union employee who is applying for a classified non-union position having a higher salary range maximum than the employee's current position.
When an employing official determines that there are likely to be sufficient classified non-union promotional candidates within the organizational unit to fill one or more vacant classified non-union positions, the employing official may restrict the applicant pool to classified non-union organizational unit promotion candidates.
The official may also make a organizational unit promotion postings available to other organizational applicants as follows:
If a position is being made available to other than classified non-union organizational unit promotion candidates, the job positing will state whether or not organizational promotion candidates will receive priority in consideration over other organizational unit applicants. If the employing official is not able to fill a position from the organizational promotion applicant pool, the position may be reposted without the organizational unit promotion restriction.
The application of a classified non-union employee for a classified non-union position that is not restricted to organizational unit promotion will be considered before those of other applicants provided the individual meets all job competency and skill requirements. Such consideration does not extend to include any preference in the selection and hiring process.
