Local 21 has received notice from the Department of Human Resources (DHR) that all funds in the Local 21 Employee Development Fund (EDF) for FY 16-17 have been fully encumbered (reserved). If you already received pre-approval for your expense, this will not affect you. But if you were planning to apply for pre-approval, the fund is exhausted at this time.
DHR’s online system is not accepting any additional FY16/17 pre-approval requests for Local 21. The system will re-open if employees cancel requests and money is released into the fund. If the system is re-opened, DHR will notify Department approvers and post an announcement online here.
