7 June 2010
As we move towards Support Process Review (SPR) implementation it has been decided that, with effect from Monday 28th June 2010, the University will implement a slightly revised process for grade re-evaluations.
From that date, all requests for grade re-evaluations will be reviewed by Personnel Services to assess whether the role in question is likely to be changed in any way by SPR.
Where the role is likely to be changed, re-evaluation may not be permitted pending implementation of SPR. We are taking this step to ensure that grades remain reasonably stable during the period when we are finalising new structures and planning for the movement of staff to the new structures.
The decision on whether any re-evaluation should progress will be taken by Personnel Services, in consultation with the line manager and, where appropriate, the relevant future Process Owner.
Once SPR implementation is complete the grade re-evaluation process will revert to normal.
