Central Salary Management Policy Implemented
UW President Tom Buchanan has directed that the university implement a new policy with respect to classified staff positions. The policy governs the salary funds that will be retained on classified staff lines when vacancies occur or when budgets are established for new positions.
Effective March 1, funding for classified staff positions that become vacant or any budget established for new positions are set at 15 percent into the pay grade. All Section I programs will relinquish funds in excess of 15 percent over the minimum pay grade for positions vacated by benefitted staff after Feb. 28.
Programs will process permanent budget transfers moving the excess funds into a central account. Classified staff positions funded through self-sustaining accounts will also be restricted to salary funds equal to 15 percent into the pay grade although the excess funds will not be transferred to a central salary pool.
Details about the Central Salary Management can be found on the Vice President for Administration and Finance Web site at: www.uwyo.edu/administration/CSM.asp.
