The County Administrator encourages departments to centralize and limit the review and approval process to the department head or other designee within its central department administration. The department head, or designee, is responsible for providing justification that the employee should receive the advanced step appointment. It is the responsibility of the department head, to ensure that copies of the proper Advanced Salary Step Appointment forms are sent to their designated location. A more rapid approval time will result when the department head, or designee, directly respond to the three criteria stated above under Section I.
