Preparing to Post

The options below provide detailed information on creating and modifying existing positions prior to posting. This is known as the Compensation & Classification Review (CCR) process and is handled by our Compensation team. The team is available to assist with creating and modifying job descriptions and helping to determine fair market rates for positions. You can review the full CCR guide by clicking below.

The CCR Review Committee meets every Wednesday to review position requests from the departments. Follow the steps below to submit a CCR request.

  • Compensation performs a thorough analysis of the request to ensure internal equity and market competitiveness.


  • The CCR list is sent to the CCR Review Committee no later than Tuesday afternoon before the Wednesday Review Committee meeting.
  • Compensation presents the requests to the CCR Review Committee for approval.
  • Compensation sends approval/non-approval notification emails to the requesting department.

Any changes recommended by the CCR Committee will be communicated to the department prior to the approval/non-approval notification email.

Complete the Compensation and Classification Request (CCR) form

  • If you need to develop a new job description, please complete a Job Description Template prior to submitting your CCR.

The CCR Committee conducts reviews every Wednesday, and approval emails are typically sent 24 – 48 hours after the committee meets.

Once you receive the CCR approval email, you can Create and submit an eForm.

  • Remember to attach the approval email from the CCR review to your eForm.
  • Please note that the TCE Data Team will not process an eForm without the necessary attachments.

After the eForm is submitted and approved, you will receive a notification email from the TCE Data Team, confirming the generation of a position number. This approval email will be sent to the submitter of the eForm.

Once you have the position number, you can proceed to Step 1 - Posting, or alternatively, contact your Recruiter for further assistance.

If you are filling a vacancy within an existing budgeted position and no changes are being made to the position’s title, salary level, etc., you do not need to go through the Compensation and Classification Review (CCR) process.

  • Review the current job description to ensure the responsibilities are accurate and up-to-date.
  • Obtain approval from the hiring authority in your department to proceed with posting the position.
  • Proceed to Step 1 - Posting of the Recruitment Toolkit

By following these steps, you can efficiently fill the vacancy without the need for additional processes or approvals.

If departments are replacing an existing position and wish to make changes to the job duties or other aspects, it is advisable to contact the Compensation team at compensation@uta.edu. They will provide guidance and support in these situations.

Please make sure to attach an updated job description when contacting the Compensation team, as changing job duties may sometimes require a complete title change. Including the current and updated job description will assist them with assessing the necessary adjustments accurately.

Before you contact recruitment for any position inquiries, it is imperative that you have a job description that is updated and accurately captures the minimum and preferred requirements for a candidate to be successful in a role.
