University Appointments

"Appointments" is the UO reference to the recordkeeping of position assignments given to university employees.  Appointments occur upon hire and throughout the duration of employment when an employee transitions to other positions within the university.  Initial appointments and all subsequent changes require documentation and recordkeeping within the university's employee record management system in Banner.  The Data Team in HR Operations is responsible for the oversight and completion of appointment records, which are submitted through the Request To Offer (RTO) form.

Appointment records, RTOs, include information about the employee's position including appointment type, job title, department assignment, compensation, start date, employee and other important details.  RTOs are generated by a designated department representative. The RTO is used to setup payroll and create a contract for the employee. Detailed instructions for completing an RTO can be found in the Request To Offer Resource Guide.
