Personnel Policy and Procedures Manual

Revised July 1, 2002


Introduction

This electronic version of MSU-Bozeman's Personnel Policy and Procedures Manual was created to provide an easily accessible online reference which can be updated when policies change. Also, the hypertext links included in this document assist the reader in locating information. The electronic version also reduces the need for printed copies, which are much more difficult to keep current.
