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.

Spot Awards

Spot Awards are designed to recognize special contributions, as they occur, for a specific project or task. Spot Awards are generally for a special contribution accomplished over a relatively short time period. A Spot Award lets employees know that someone has noticed their noteworthy contribution. At the same time, it recognizes and reinforces the behaviors and values that are important at UC Berkeley.
