Position Inventory Data Collection

The Position Inventory collection allows University management to track changes in employees, organizational affilitiation, job classification, or funding, either through a monthly snapshot or through monthly tracking of changes to specific positions. The collection was created in the Data Warehouse in 1997, to support the Position Inventory web reports available in BEN Reports. Whether accessed via the web or ad hoc query, this data gives University management a common language to discuss the status of positions, whether open or filled, and provides a mechanism for understanding changes in the number and the organizational location of positions.

Individuals wishing to query the collection directly (using Business Objects or another query tool) must complete the appropriate section on the Financial data access request form. Those accessing the web reports should refer to the access guidelines for BEN Reports.

Position Inventory features and benefits incude:

  • Tracking position trends on a monthly and fiscal year basis, and for the same accounting period of the previous year
  • Tracking expenditures for temporary employees
  • Reporting on positions in FTE terms, with full accounting of part-time positions
