Position Description (PD)

A Position Description documents a specific set of essential functions and qualifications for one unique position. It is a formal document describing how a position fits within the unit and organization. Accurate and up-to-date position descriptions are an important component for evaluating performance and for ensuring an employee is at the correct pay level.  Position descriptions also aid in making decisions about fair and competitive pay.

Below are links to the Classification Request Form and the Position Description Form.  Supervisors should complete both forms when reorganizing departments, creating new positions, looking to fill vacant positions or submitting positions for evaluation and reclassification.

The Handouts and Training Presentation powerpoints give more details about the PD process and also some examples.
