(2) prompt notification to OMR of personnel actions;

(3) active, concerned leadership in assisting employees to carry out individual development plans;

(4) prompt and accurate action in all hiring of new employees, promotions, transfers, and disciplinary actions in conformance with this title.

(b) The training and technical aspects of personnel administration may be delegated to supervisors, trainers, and personnel officers, but the basic responsibility for overall administration in each agency remains at the top.
