  2. What is Position Management? Position Management is a campus driven strategic tool that provides transparency around positions and their respective funding. Position Management is used to organize, establish, and track positions. A "position" is a group of duties and responsibilities to be assigned to an employee. Focusing on the position itself allows you to track information related to the position, regardless of whether it is vacant or an employee is assigned to that position. 2 Why Position Management? 2017

  3. Position Management is often described with the analogy “seats at the table ” And it looks like this: POSITION Web Designer Nights • A Table represents a Major Budgetary Unit • The style, color and other characteristics of the chair represents IT Department the Job • A chair or a “Seat” represents a unique Position POSITION : SR IT Director POSITION: A Position can be: Web Designer Days • Vacant or Filled • Budgeted or Not Budgeted 3 Why Position Management? 2017

  4. Position Management analogy on each campus POSITION : POSITION : Chair of Biology Administrative Assistant Biology Department Campus Position Management Principles: One Position = One Employee • Possible to have a one to one match between Job and Position (In this case the Chair of • Biology) Possible to have a one to many match between Job and Positions. (In this case the 6 • Administrative Assistants have the same job code) A fully staffed department will have “a person” in each specific seat (Position) • 4 Why Position Management? 2017

  5. Why campuses are interested in expanding usage of Position Management • Align positions with budgets • Visibility into funded and unfunded positions • Ability to manage vacant positions • Ability to manage position numbers to be inactivated • Ability to track staffing levels over time • Organizational reporting relationships can be tracked independent of employees in those positions • Enable a clearly defined approval process for new requisitions 5 Why Position Management? 2017

  6. Advantages of all campuses working together • Leverage the resources available across all campuses to design the implementation • Agree on consistent data usage for reporting and campus roll-outs, while maintaining campus flexibility for implementation • Maximizing the IT/PeopleSoft resources needed • Provide a predictable, timely, and consistent method to manage our largest budget expense • Begin providing/creating updated clean data in preparation for the move to a future system. When the new solution is implemented we will be poised to take advantage of functionality sooner, by having historical data and defined position code methodology in place. 6 Why Position Management? 2017

  7. Types of data driven reporting that can be generated by Position Management tool The goal of the prototype review is to: 1) present campus leadership with a consistent definition of a university system position management tool and 2) Learn or confirm the type of information managers need to more effectively manage their department’s budgets and positions. The prototypes are a sampling of data collection that could be presented in a real time manner from a system wide position management tool. In every case, data is collected to enable rolling up to the University system level to capture similar data for the six campuses or drilling down to a unique position on one campus. Annual Commitment This prototype is similar to excel reports currently generated by some campuses as a component of the annual budgeting process. It is presented from both an HR Unit and Finance Unit perspective Net Vacancy Variance This prototype demonstrates approaches for monitoring vacancy savings Trending Data This prototype suggests a method to review three-year staffing trends Why Position Management? 2017 7

  8. Definitions Academic Department Staff : Non-faculty staff positions in the academic/research area of the university Budgeted Position : A position that has funding in that fiscal year Employee : A person who is paid through payroll Employee - Full Time : Employee whose regular hours/work load are 100% of regular hours/work load per week as defined by union and/or job Employee - Part Time : Employee whose regular hours/work load are less than 100% of regular hours/work per week as defined by union and/or job Employee Full Time Equivalent (FTE) : Employee total hours/work load divided by regular hours per week depending on union and/or job Faculty : Individual with an appointment in one or more schools. Faculty can be on instructional, research or administrative appointments or some combination of these. (NTT, TT, adjunct, part-time lecturer, voluntary) Major Budget Unit (MBU) : An area on campus responsible for their budgets that interacts with the budget office on budgeting, forecasting and reporting on their budgets Non-Tenure Track : Individuals who are not eligible for the award of tenure Non-Unit Employees : Employees not covered by a collective bargaining unit Position: A seat at the table whether it is filled or vacant Position Management : A strategic process used to assign and track resources (positions and funding) to the organizational structure. Tenured or Tenure Track (TT) Faculty : Individuals who have achieved or are eligible for the award of tenure Union Employees : All employees covered by a collective bargaining unit Vacant Position A position that is approved and unfilled A complete list of definitions is available on the BPR website’s Glossary page: https://www.umassp.edu/better-together Why Position Management? 2017 8
