Add New Person eDoc

The Add New Person electronic document (eDoc) is used in the hiring process to create or “add” a new person to HRMS (HR database). 

All non-US citizen or permanent resident hires require special processing through the Office of International Services.  Refer to the Add New Person - International section of this manual.

Business Process Overview:

Human Resources/Final Approver:

  • The Add New Person eDoc routes to Human Resources/Faculty Affairs for approval.
  • The Central Office verifies through Search/Match that the individual does not exist in HRMS.
  • The Central Office final approves and completes the save in HRMS.
