Personnel Policies for Staff Members (PPSM) are systemwide policies and procedures issued by the Office of the President. PPSM apply to all staff employees whose positions are not otherwise governed by a collective bargaining agreement (e.g., labor contract).

Many PPSM have supplemental procedures that are specific to the Berkeley campus. Each PPSM should be read in conjunction with the corresponding Berkeley Procedure.  

If you have any questions about whether you are covered by PPSM or by a labor contract, please contact your supervisor.
