When will I use the Position Number? Do I need to know my own number?
The only time a position number is needed is when a position is being filled, changed, or abolished. Budget unit managers have access to a report that lists the currently filled and vacant positions in their unit. The report is also used for budgeting processes. You do not need to know your position number for any reason, but if you are interested, please ask your budget unit manager to provide it to you.
