Academic Hiring Authorizations (AHA's) are not required for May or summer 2012 P&A and Faculty instructional teaching appointments. Since CLA HR and Faculty will not be reviewing or approving summer instructional appointments, hiring authorities must ensure that new hires meet all required qualifications outlined in the job requisition.
In addition, departments need not submit draft offer letters to CLA HR for approval. Offer letters must still be provided to and signed by the employee, but do not need to be routed through CLA HR. The 2012 template letter has been revised and can be found on the CLA HR intranet at: http://cla.umn.edu/assets/doc/2012MayandSummerSessionsOfferLetter.doc
