NSTP — Implementation Procedures

The Negotiated Salary Trial Program (“NSTP”) allows eligible ladder-rank faculty in participating schools to contribute external funding resources toward their total University of California (UC) salary.  The NSTP, like the well-established Health Sciences Compensation Plan (HSCP), allows faculty to utilize external fund sources to support a portion of their total compensation.  The trial program, whose initial five year pilot began in FY 2013-14 has been approved for an additional four years beginning July 1, 2018. The NSTP will not place any additional burden on the UC Retirement Plan (UCRP).

The NSTP policies and procedures are issued by UC Office of the President and defined in their Basic Program Document. NSTP participants remain subject to the requirements of other UC policies including, but not limited to, Conflict of Interest, Conflict of Commitment, Faculty Code of Conduct, Lab Safety, Sexual Harassment Prevention, and policies requiring submission of proposals and receipt of awards for grants and contracts through the University.  External consulting and other externally compensated activities will continue to be permitted in accordance with APM 025, Conflict of Commitment and Outside Activities of Faculty Members.
