Management Personnel Program (MPP)
Policies and Programs
Prior to 1984, CSU management and supervisory positions, as defined
by the Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act (HEERA),
were classified in task-oriented narrowly-defined classifications.
In 1984, the CSU replaced this management/supervisory classification
structure with the Management Personnel Plan (MPP). The MPP, defined
in Title 5, Article 2.2, is an integrated personnel system addressing
employment rights, benefits and conditions for employees designated
as "management" or "supervisory" under HEERA. The MPP was and
is designed to be a flexible personnel program consisting of four
very broad generic classification levels (Administrator I, II,
III and IV) and correspondingly broad salary ranges.
In 1984, all positions for management and supervisory employees
were merged into the four new generic MPP classifications. For
a few years, the old classifications were referred to as "tracking
classes." Administrative references to these "tracking classes"
were eliminated December 31, 1994 (refer to HR
