Under certain conditions it may be necessary for an employing department to hire an individual named in a grant or contract.  With prior approval of the Office of Human Resource Services and the provost and chief academic officer, a faculty or exempt staff member may be hired with full benefits under the following conditions:

  1. The individual is named as principal or co-principal investigator of the grant or contract.
  2. The individual named in the grant or contract possesses unique or highly specialized qualifications required by the granting agency in order to carry out the responsibilities required of the grant or contract.
  3. The granting agency has approved the award of the grant or contract subject to the appointment of the particular individual named.
  4. The university is awarded or assumes the oversight of an existing external workforce. Under these conditions, waiver of the advertising requirements for regular employment must be requested in writing to the Office of Human Resource Services and the Office of the Provost and Chief Academic Officer. Employment of an individual named in a grant or contract is contingent upon funding of that specific grant or contract and is not transferable to another source of funding.
