This page contains information about senior level appointments, annuitants, furlough placement and the Temporary Clerical Pool.
Senior Level Appointments
When you are appointing a new employee to a senior level position, you should use the senior level requests (SLR) application
to gain approval from the Office of Administration and the Governor’s Office. The Office of Inspector General will perform a background check as part of this approval process if it is necessary.
Contact OA, Human Resources and Management (717.787.8191) to gain access to the SLR application or if you have questions about the process. Contact the HR Service Center, Business Information and Support Division (877.242.6007, Option 4) for technical assistance with the online system.
Furlough placement can be a complicated process. See the Act 71 of 2018, Civil Service Reform
, for more information. Contact OA-Talent Acquisition and Planning, Staffing Services at 717.787.5703 with questions regarding the furlough hiring process.
