Salary Scales

The new salary scales are available on the AP Website. Please do not enter the new October 1, 2019 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: 10/25/2019).
  • CAP GAP: 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. Effective October 1, 2019, NSTP participants must decrease the Negotiated Salary Component (NSC), while increasing the Scale Based Salary (SBS) to maintain the same Total UC Salary (TUCS) that was approved prior to the range adjustment.
