Management Personnel Program (MPP)

Policies and Programs


MPP History
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 Letter 1994-31).
