Merits and Promotions Effective July 1, 2018

The applicable salary increase will be applied in addition to the Faculty’s approved merit or promotion effective July 1, 2018.

Salary Scales

The new salary scales are available on the AP Website. Please do not enter the new July 1, 2018 rates into PPS until after the adjustment has been completed.

After the Adjustment

      • REVIEW: Payroll no longer automatically prints/distributes reports of the changes resulting from the range adjustment process.  You still have access to these reports via the EDL. Instructions on accessing these reports can be found at: https://wiki.oit.uci.edu/display/public/Electronic+Document+Libraries+%28EDL%29+Payroll+Reports+Overview. Please remember that it is critical that you review and verify the accuracy of these reports as soon as possible. With so many payroll changes occurring, it is important that any errors be corrected before salary is affected (payroll cut-off: 7/27/2018).
      • SUMMER SALARY and/or CAP GAP: Summer salary distribution lines that are not subject to salary caps will be adjusted accordingly. Units will need to update the Salary Differentials/Cap Gap to account for the increase in salary.

NSTP (Negotiated Salary Trial Program)

The range adjustment will not update any NSTP appointment lines or distributions.  Participants in the NSTP must choose one of the three options below for updating their appointment/distribution lines.

      1. Increase the NSC amount (Negotiated Salary Component) to account for the increased SBS (Scale Based Salary).
      2. Decrease the NSC to maintain the same salary (TUCS, Total UC Salary) prior to the range adjustment.
      3. Maintain the same NSC amount prior to the range adjustment and lower the NSTP participation percentage.

Reminder: Unit 18 PPS Freeze

The PPS freeze for the Unit 18 range adjustment starts Monday, July 2, 2018. Please do not make any adjustments/additions in PPS for that population until July 7, 2018.
