Pursuant to the Division of the Budget (DOB) Bulletin D-1126 issued 11/6/09, agencies will be required to apply for Budget Director’s Approvals (BDA) through the new automated process as indicated in the Budget Bulletin.
Upon approval by DOB, NYSTEP will send the information to OSC on the NHRP524 Position file with the information formerly conveyed on the BDA form. The NHRP524 will update the approved salary rate or equated to grade fields on the affected Position Data page using the new Reason Code BDA and the effective date of the transaction. The incumbent will not be updated.
OSC will not have access to view a BDA prior to approval in NYSTEP.
OSC has created the new Reason Code BDA to be used for certain Job Action Requests that will allow DOB, Civil Service, OSC and agencies to more easily identify transactions which have BDA approval.
