The source of funding used to pay the position’s salary determines whether it will be affected by the hiring freeze. Positions using a fund code of 2XXX are impacted by the hiring freeze and will need further review before they can be advertised or filled. Positions using fund codes 3xxx, 4xxx or 5xxx are not subject to the hiring freeze.
You can view the fund code of a cost center in Budgets Overview in PeopleSoft (Gemini Financials). If you don’t have ready access to the fund code field, funding can be determined by checking the fourth digit of the paying cost center. If the fourth digit is “2” the position is subject to the hiring freeze (e.g., 44122001 = state funded). Cost centers with the fourth digit of “3,” “4,” and “5,” are exempt.
