Administrative Manual

Human Resource Management provides our Administrative Manual containing personnel policies and programs for the convenience of City employees and others.

While this information does not constitute a comprehensive list of all personnel procedures, it does contain the general policies and programs adopted by the City Manager and applicable to employees of the City of Portsmouth.  Please note that various personnel actions may also be governed by the City Code, City Charter, City Manager administrative procedures, actions and/or decisions of the City Council, and federal and state laws and regulations.

We attempt to ensure that the following policies and programs on our website are current and accurate.  In order to view our policies and programs presented below, you will need a reader, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, since they are in .pdf file format.
