General Campus Compensation Plan Trial – Extension Year 5, Phase 2
I am pleased to announce the continuation of the General Campus Compensation Plan Extension Trial. Year 5 of the Phase 2 extension period will begin on July 1, 2022. The program is still under system-wide review for conversion to policy in future years.
This trial program, currently in use at UC San Diego, UCD, UCI, UCLA, UCR, and UCSC, was developed in partnership with the UC San Diego and system-wide Academic Senate. Like the well-established Health Sciences Compensation Plan, it allows faculty to utilize external fund sources to support a portion of their total UC salary.
Eligibility is limited to Ladder Rank, Teaching Professors (LPSOE/LSOEs), and In-Residence faculty who meet good standing and program requirements. Faculty who wish to negotiate an additional salary component utilizing their own external fund sources generated by research, teaching, or outreach activities will be required to submit an annual proposal. General funds, including startup, cannot be substituted for external funds to pay the negotiated portion of the salary.
Faculty with approved proposals will be compensated at the total UC salary rate for the period of July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023; the total UC salary rate will be comprised of the negotiated component plus the faculty member’s base salary (scale rate plus any approved off-scale salary increment). Summer ninths will be paid at the total UC salary rate according to standard summer salary policies.
Your divisional dean’s office will soon issue a call for 2022-2023 GCCP proposals. Faculty who wish to participate will be required to submit a proposal that must be endorsed by the department chair and divisional dean and approved by the Executive Vice Chancellor.
