Campus Only Recruitment

I. Policy Summary

Under UC Policy PPSM 20 Recruitment, a recruitment may be limited to internal candidates to support career progress of qualified incumbent employees but must be consistent with equal employment opportunity (EEO) and affirmative action objectives and result in a pool of qualified applicants.  Recruitment that is limited to internal candidates must be approved by the Chief Human Resources Officer in consultation with the Affirmative Action Officer to ensure compliance with EEO and affirmative action requirements. Proper recruitment practices ensure that the most qualified candidates are selected, guard against discrimination, and foster the attainment of affirmative action goals.
