Organizational Management

  • Please e-mail hr_mdc@txstate.edu and budget@txstate.edu with the position number, effective date, and new planned compensation amount, that is within the range of the job title.

  • Please e-mail hr_mdc@txstate.edu and budget@txstate.edu with the position number and new cost distribution information of where the position should be funded. For grant positions that are more than 50% of the costing, the master level cost center and 8999999999 will be used on the position, unless Budget directs otherwise.

  • For hourly positions, please e-mail hr_mdc@txstate.edu with the effective date and position number of the position you want to delimit. For salary staff positions, please e-mail hr_mdc@txstate.edu and budget@txstate.edu with the effective date and position number you want to delimit. Only vacant positions can be delimited from SAP.

  • Less than three business days for Non-Benefit employees, like hourly student workers, NSNRs, and non-academic grads.

    For “Regular” Benefits-eligible employees, the request must be submitted via the People Admin System for audit and approval. This can take up to a couple of weeks or longer.

  • Complete the Supervisor Change Request form on the MDC website and send it to the MDC mailbox at hr_mdc@txstate.edu.

    Changes are not made retroactively. These are processed usually within a few days depending on workload. You will be notified once they are complete.

  • Please submit this completed spreadsheet to hr_mdc@txstate.edu, and copy the department heads of the former and new org unit where the position is moving from and to on the e-mail. For example, if a position is moving from Human Resources to Budget, each department head (HR and Budget) will need to be included on the e-mail that is submitted to the HR MDC mailbox, along with the completed spreadsheet.

  • There is a checklist to help you with this process. You can find it on the MDC website under Organizational Management.

    You will need to submit the VP approval memo, spreadsheet with all the positions impacted, and all information requested on the checklist to hr_mdc@txstate.edu.

  • Multi-holder positions are allowed in SAP, with approval by the MDC, on certain hourly student and hourly staff (NSNR) positions. A multi-holder position allows the department to use the same position number for multiple employees.

    To be considered for a multi-holder position, five or more hourly employees (student/NSNR) must be doing the same job in your department, reporting to the same supervisor, and have the same cost distribution on the position. New and current positions can be a multi-holder position upon request and approval. Requests can be sent to hr_mdc@txstate.edu.

  • No, this is not possible. Only one supervisor is allowed on record for all employees in a multi-holder position. If you need to change the reporting relationship for one employee in a multi-holder position, you will need to create a change in position PCR to move the employee to a different position number, and then change the supervisor on the position the employee is moving to, if it needs to be changed.

  • No, only “regular” Staff employees are eligible for SAP HR security roles.

  • To view reporting relationships in SAP, you can access the SAP transaction PPSS. At the SAP Easy Access Menu enter PPSS in the blank field; the following Display Structure screen will appear.
