CLA NOW - Special Edition

Joint CLA Fiscal / Human Resources Meeting

The July Fiscal/Human Resources Meeting is tomorrow, July 23, at 9:00 a.m. in 275 Nicholson Hall.

REMINDER: CS/BU Annual Reviews were due on May 11

As you know, the 2009-09 Annual Review for Civil Service and Bargaining Unit Employees were due to the college on May 11, 2009. It is extremely important that each CSBU employee have an Annual Review, and that they are completed in a timely manner.

If you have not done so already, please follow your unit's procedures for forwarding a completed and signed annual review to the CLA Office of Human Resources (212 Johnston Hall; 3774) and to central Human Resources (200 Donhowe; 3122).

The form and instructions may be found on the CLA HR website at: http://www.cla.umn.edu/intranet/faculty/csbuReviews.php

If you have any additional questions, please contact the Personnel Specialist assigned to your unit:

Millie Reid (volkm003@umn.edu ), 612-626-7648
Tihara Chadwick (chadw025@umn.edu ) , 612-624-0098

CLA Human Resources Folder on the CLA-Projects (P:) Drive

For your convenience, there is now a "CLA Human Resources" folder on the college's projects drive, as requested in the last Joint HR/Fiscal meeting. You may now place your required hiring documentation into the appropriate departmental file folder instead of emailing numerous attachments. Please see attached for further information.

Many of you have expressed a need to use the Single Payment Vendor form for those one-time, small payments needed for various services without the requirement to set up a new vendor for these payments.  We have continued to remind Central of our desire for this, and it has finally come to fruition. And yes, it includes honoraria!!           

The revised procedures are effective immediately. Procedures for making accounts payable payments using a single payment vendor number (SPV) have been published and are available in the U-wide policy library at:

A list of Payments Allowed Using Single Payment Vendor (SPV) Numbers can be found at:


To use the SPV process for one of these, a Check Request Form will need to be completed. If you have any questions on this, please contact your senior accountant.

P/A Instructional Template Letters

The new template letters for P/A instructional appointments are available on the CLA Intranet on the Human Resources Page.
The letters can be found here, under Offer and Renewal Letter Templateshttp://cla.umn.edu/intranet/hr/#writingJobDescription
As has been our practice, these letters combine appointment and non-renewal language. You will notice that we expanded the non-renewal language to make certain all appointees understand the terms and conditions of the appointment.

As you work on appointing your instructional staff for the coming year, please use these letters. They are also posted on the CLA HR website. If an appointment does not seem to fit into one of these three letters, or if you have any questions regarding the template letters, please contact your CLA HR representative
