OBJECTIVE:
To establish an expedited, alternative evaluation and selection process for filling externally-funded
administrative, professional support, faculty or classified staff positions on a competitive basis. The standard
candidate evaluation process may be utilized at the option of the budget head for the externally-funded
program.
Employment in an externally-funded position: An externally-funded employee is a person employed by the
District in a position which is contingent upon and funded by an outside source. Employees may be
recommended by the supervisor for continued employment beyond the original employment period if the
external funding is renewed or if the position is extended with funding, in accordance with District
procedure. On the other hand, the supervisor has the option to readvertise a position at the conclusion of any
employment period and/or at the time the position is extended, either on an externally-funded or
institutionally-funded basis.

process being mindful of their responsibility to provide equal employment opportunity to each applicant regardless of
