Deadline and method of submission
(1) Article 90 of the EUI’s Staff Regulations and Article 1(1) of Common Provisions for the Teaching Staff and Administrative Staff provide that any staff member may submit a formal request to the President asking him to take a decision concerning him or her.
Requests should not seek revision of a decision already taken, unless new evidence comes to light, in which case a request can be submitted to have the decision reviewed.
A request can be submitted at any time. However, a request concerning the same matter as an earlier request or complaint which has received no reply or a negative reply may not reopen the period for the submission of a complaint allowed by Article 1(2) of Common Provisions for the Teaching and Administrative Staff.
Treatment of the request
The President will notify the staff member of his/her decision, which must be reasoned, within four months from the date on which the request was made.
If at the end of that period no reply to the request has been received, this shall be deemed to constitute an implied decision rejecting it, against which a complaint may be lodged as explained below.
