Staff Appointments Online (SAO)

SAO is a web-based system intended to provide an accessible and streamlined facility for the completion of staff appointment applications. This resource is one component of a larger project within Human Resources Services that will address all aspects of the staff appointment process. 

 The system has been designed to reduce the effort required in the following areas: 

  • Completing the online appointment form.
  • Generation of a letter of offer for the appointee.
  • Various budget and time calculations needed to complete an appointment form.
  • Collection of some ancillary forms needed to be provided to an appointee.
  • Validation of entered data by HR to prevent errors of key information. 

Although SAO offers many areas of automation in the creation of offer letters and budgeting calculation, it is important to continue to proof read and double-check the system outputs.
