Tips for Searching
If you do not know the full spelling of the first or last name, you can enter just the first few letters. The Search Person tool displays names that match the letters you enter.
When retrieving search results, the Search Person tool also reviews former names of personnel. If someone's former name matches the criteria on which you are searching, that person will display in the search results.
- In addition to a person's name, the search results may include identifying information like the person's nickname, local staff number, state staff ID, primary location and position code if the personnel record includes this information.
- Do NOT use a comma when searching with the last name first.
