VII-9.11 - POLICY ON PAY ADMINISTRATION FOR EXEMPT POSITIONS
(Approved by the Board of Regents on December 3, 1999,
EFFECTIVE January 2 and January 12, 2000)
I. PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY
This policy governs the pay administration for positions in
the Exempt group and applies to all Exempt employees of the
University System of Maryland.
The University System of Maryland is composed of 13 distinct
and complementary institutions united by the mission of
advancing education, research and service. Each institution
will compensate employees according to the following principles:
A. Market Based - Pay ranges and structures shall be appropriately
competitive within each institution's respective employment
B. Internal Job Value - Assignment of jobs to pay ranges
will reflect the relative value of jobs within each
C. Individual Pay - Employees will be paid according to job
value and their contribution to the institution's mission.
III. PROGRAM DESIGN
Each Institution is responsible for design of a Pay
Administration Program for exempt positions consistent
with the principles delineated in Section II above.
This program will be submitted to the Chancellor for
approval prior to implementation.
Each Chief Executive Officer shall identify his/her designee(s)
as appropriate for this policy; shall develop procedures as
necessary to implement this policy; shall communicate this
policy and applicable procedures to his/her institutional
community. Prior to the initial implementation of the
Exempt Pay program, each Institution shall forward a copy
of such procedures to the Chancellor for approval.
Additionally, this policy supersedes, in whole or in part,
any policy(ies) and/or procedure(s) established by the
Regents, Trustees, Presidents, or their designees, of the
former institutions of the University of Maryland, and of
the former State Universities and Colleges, and of the
Regents of the University System of Maryland that are in
conflict with this policy's purpose, applicability, or
intent, that may have been overlooked and not included as
a specific citation under Replacement For.
