Vacant Positions - All Fund Groups except Contract & Grant Vacant Positions: Vacancies create an opportunity to examine your unit’s operational needs, if positions are not going to be filled in the near future you should delete that position and use the base funds to reallocate to meet other priority needs.
Note: Deleting the record in budget construction only removes funding. The position is still “active” until a Maintain Position e-doc is processed to change its status. If you have any questions, please contact Patti Quimby (email@example.com).
Budgeting Vacant Positions: Vacant positions must be budgeted with the desired amount for a planned future hire, otherwise, the minimum amount for that vacancy rank is to be budgeted.
