Subject: FY04 Personnel Budget Update
During development of the FY04 budget back in the spring semester, because of the proposed reductions for which we needed to plan, hiring was frozen (see FY04 Projected Budget Update message of February 14.)
With the budget finalized at the July meeting of the Board of Trustees and entered into FRS, we are in a position to lift the hiring freeze such that personnel actions for which funds were identified in the budget process may now be processed as usual without presidential approval, including grant-funded positions and positions approved in the March Slot Book as well as those added as part of the budget development process. There were also a number of positions that were deferred for which funding is not included in the university budget at this time.
