What is the new PAR/CRF?

In an effort to move to a more forward-looking recruiting system, the current CRF is being replaced with the new PAR/CRF, which is more user-friendly and on a different platform allowing it to interface with the new Taleo Recruiting System.The acronym PAR/CRF stands for Position Authorization Request/Compensation Request Form.

Is there a new URL that is needed to access the new PAR/CRF form?

No, you will continue to access the PAR/CRF form using the same URL that you do now.  If issuing a PAR/CRF form is a new process for your department, the URL can be found on the HR website under HR Forms.

What happens to my CRFs that are currently pending?

All CRFs (Classify new, Reclassify Vacant) that will have been approved by the Compensation Staff by 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 16 will automatically be posted on the new Taleo Recruiting System.  All pending requests will be moved to Taleo manually in subsequent loads after the April 20 system go-live date.  Your HR Consultant or Compensation Analyst will contact you to discuss any requests pending after 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 16.

Is there any training available?

A quick training document is provided for your reference: PAR/CRF Training Document

Classroom training is also available during the Taleo Hiring Manager trainings.  Visit the LMS for a current schedule and to register for a class.

What do I do if I have problems issuing the new PAR/CRF?

If you have problems with the new PAR/CRF or any additional questions, please contact your Compensation Analyst or HR Consultant.

Temp Services:

Will we still use the paper form to request a temporary employee?

No, it will now be you or your department representative’s responsibility to submit the electronic PAR/CRF.  Select the Temporary Request Form.  Please see the Recruiting System webpage to review training documents and/or register for a training session.

Hospital RMS Orgs:

Will the process for submitting Personnel Action (PA) Form to RMS change with the PAR/CRF form?

No, you will continue to submit your PA to RMS, and RMS will enter the information into the CRF/PAR system.  You do not need to log in to the CRF/PAR system if RMS creates your requisitions for you. 

Will I have any need to use the new PAR/CRF?

Only if you have a compensation related request.  For all recruitment related actions, please continue to work with RMS.

Hospital Orgs not supported through RMS :

What is the PAR/CRF?

The PAR/CRF is an electronic version of the old PRF paper form. The acronym PAR/CRF stands for Position Authorization Request/Compensation Request Form.

Why is this changing and what is the benefit?

In an effort to move to a more forward-looking recruiting system, the current paper PRF is being replaced with the electronic PAR/CRF allowing it to interface with the new Taleo Recruiting System. Read more about the project here.

How will the approvals be captured?

Approvals will be captured electronically.  The approval sequence will be determined by the approvers set up in WAM for document type ‘CRF’. These have been already set up for all the orgs. For questions related to WAM, please contact your organizations’ Workflow Officer.

How long will our paper Position Requisition Form (PRF) continue to be supported?

Hospital HR will continue to accept paper PRFs till 2:00 p.m. April 16.  All requests after that deadline will need to be entered via the new PAR/CRF form.

I still have a lot of unanswered questions, who do I talk to?
