Hiring Procedures for grant-supported personnel must adhere to the same University and State of South Carolina guidelines, requirements, regulations, and policies that apply to all other employees hired by the University. Contact the University Human Resources Office for guidance in the proper procedures and forms to use. It must be remembered that certain procedures (establishing a new position, dual employment, upgrading a position, etc.) require several weeks for completion. Contact the University's HREO office to obtain copies of procedures and forms for personnel related items, including how to establish a temporary grant position and how to complete the Personnel Action Form (PAF).
