Personnel Review Cycle (PRC) Request System

The Personnel Review Cycle (PRC) is a preliminary submission process for all staff employee job changes, salary adjustments, and new position requests for Fiscal Year 2025. The PRC is an annual planning activity, allowing departments to review staffing needs holistically and submit requests to aid in departmental needs.

The PRC will be facilitated through a new online form this year. Each college or division leader has designated the individuals who will coordinate the PRC for their area. These are the only people who have access to the PRC online form.

The PRC is the preliminary step before you are allowed to submit the Pre-Authorization (PA1) ePAF in HR Peoplesoft for full review and final approval. Approval on the PRC does not guarantee approval on the PA1. Do not communicate any pay increases or reclassifications to employees until the PA1 is fully executed by HR Compensation.

Review the Compensation Guidelines by Transaction Type Guide to ensure the request is compliant and you have all required documents to submit with the PA1.
