Base Pay

Pay By Agreement

By Agreement Title Codes

Title Codes are "By Agreement" when there are no specific salary ranges associated with that title code. Titles are "By Agreement" when incumbents in those positions might be paid a wide range of salaries based upon specialization (e.g., football coaches are generally paid significantly more than tennis coaches). By Agreement title codes may have any DOS codes; they are NOT restricted to BYA or BYN.

By Agreement DOS (Description of Service) Codes

Payroll DOS (description of service) codes can be BYA (By Agreement - eligible for retirement) or BYN (By Agreement - not eligible for retirement). By Agreement DOS codes are NOT restricted to By Agreement title codes.
