SUBJECT: Revised Processing of Form S-47, Request for Extension of Leave

Memorandum 97-03 in this Section]
We are initiating several changes in the processing of Form S-47, Request
for Extension of Leave of Absence, that will eliminate certain paperwork
and ensure the timely updating and accuracy of the APP System with essential
You will still need to complete, sign and forward two copies of the
form for each request to your Staffing Services Section. Once the Commission
has acted favorably on your request, that information will be sent to
the Employment Records Section for immediate entry in the APP System.
You will no longer have to prepare a PR-75 to update the employee's APPS
You will receive notification in the form of a copy of the approved S-47
form and a transmittal memo rather than a letter from the Commission Operations
staff on each request. This change should result in timelier notification
from Commission Operations.
These changes will be implemented with the March 1996 Commission meeting.
If you have any questions, contact your Staffing Services Representative.
