The Electronic Personnel Action Form (EPAF) allows for paperless employment transactions such as hiring an employee, job or pay changes, and end of employment. The EPAF is initiated by a department initiator, and then it is electronically routed for appropriate approvals and notifications, and finally entered by HR into the system.
EPAF’s allow departments to use the MyUT system to submit these employment transactions for their part-time employees.
This system allows for greater portability of forms as users need only have access to the internet to view, create, submit, and approve forms. It also allows for a history of forms to be kept and better security with data locked within MyUT. By going to an electronic format, the efficiency of processing personnel actions is generally increased, as well as decreased numbers of mistakes, phone calls, inquiries, etc.
