To streamline the employment process and reduce the amount of time it takes to fill a position vacancy. There are delays at some stages of the employment process that result in positions being vacant for extended periods of time.


This is an update on the OPP - Employment Process team.

1. Reduced the number of requisition requiring central review - decreased waiting time on many position approvals
by 8-10 days.
2. Updated requisition document to trigger lateral check - reduced the need to repost positions.
3. Increased awareness of posting deadlines - decreased waiting time to get positions posted.

Outstanding action:
Change lateral transfer process to reduce associated administrative burden.
