  1. Heads of entities may grant or revoke the recruitment business accesses for staff members in their respective organizational units. The senior executive, administrative or human resources officers who have the functional delegation for the management of the respective organizational units, have the authority for approving inspira business roles except for the selection-associated roles, unless otherwise excluded by the relevant heads of entities. The signatories for inspira business role requests should be mindful that they remain accountable and responsible for the exercise of delegated authority that they subdelegate by approving the granting of inspira business roles particularly when higher-level roles normally reserved for the senior managers are granted to other staff members.
  2. All business roles should be removed from staff transferring out of an entity. inspira will automatically remove the roles from staff who are separated.
