I don't have a multi-function printer/scanner (MFD) to create pdf's for my HR supplemental documents. How do I complete the transaction?
You must include within the PAR Comments "Supporting documentation has been mailed". Attach a cover sheet with the text "PAR transaction ID######", followed with the text of "Emplid ########", in the upper right hand corner of cover sheet and send to HRRIS, 4073 Wolverine Tower, 1281. PAR Approvers may request a copy of the supporting documentation to Approve. Also, mailing the supporting documents into the address given will result in a delay of processing.
