General Information

  • Merit increases are based on meritorious performance as documented by the annual performance evaluation.


  • Merit increases are typically effective July 1st of each fiscal year.


  • If funded, the chancellor will approve a compensation pool. Merit increases for MPP and Confidential employees are to be awarded from a single pool, which may or may not be augmented with campus funds, depending on the program for that fiscal year.


  • Confidential salary actions for employees in non-State funded and reimbursed positions should be consistent with the above criteria. Financing issues for non-State funded positions should be addressed to individuals responsible for non-State funded operations on each campus. Processing instructions apply to both general and non-State funded Confidential employees; however, individuals responsible for non-State funded operations on each campus may set increase effective dates for non-State funded employees (must be effective at the beginning of a pay period).
