Salary Program FY18

It is important that we continue to invest in our staff who provide essential support to the academic mission of the university. Therefore, this year’s Salary Program will be based on merit, internal equity, and the external market. Consistent with the directive from the UC Office of the President, responding to feedback from the staff, across-the-board increases are not permitted.  

As part of their annual budget planning, units will provide funding in an amount equivalent to 3% of the total compensation of eligible non-represented staff.
