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.


  • Requests to pay employees above the Administrator I, II, and III range maximums must be approved by the campus president. Requests to pay above the Administrator IV level must be approved by the vice chancellor of human resources.


  • MPP 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 MPP 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).


  • Approval for Vice Presidents: Pursuant to the Board of Trustees Resolution RBOT 01-08-01, all vice presidential compensation, including Merit Salary Increases, must be approved by the CSU Chancellor. In addition, any additional employment also must be approved in advance whether for the CSU or for CSU foundations or other auxiliary organizations. As such, presidents must follow the approval procedure outlined in HR 2009-01.
