Guidelines for Administration of the FY 2021-22 Salary Program for PPSM Policy-Covered Staff
To: Deans, Directors, Department Chairs and Administrative Officers
We are very pleased to share the good news that on May 14, 2021, President Drake authorized the Chancellors to move forward with the 2021-22 Salary Program for Policy-Covered Staff. In recognition of the extraordinary efforts contributed by our policy-covered staff members during these challenging times and the inability to provide a merit program last year, this year’s program provides for a 3% general increase to all eligible recipients. Increases will be processed centrally by Campus Human Resources (CHR) or Health Human Resources (HHR) and will be effective June 27, 2021 for employees on bi-weekly payroll and July 1, 2021 for those paid monthly.
This program does not apply to exclusively represented employees, whose salaries are determined in accordance with applicable collective bargaining agreements and/or meeting-and-conferring under the Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act (HEERA). Guidelines for academic appointees will be issued separately.

Guidelines for Administration of the
In accordance with UC President Drake’s announcement of May 14, 2021, the following guidelines are designed to assist departments in implementing the FY 2021-22 salary program for eligible staff. This program applies to policy-covered non-probationary staff in career, partial-year career, and eligible contract appointments. Student employees in casual-restricted positions and limited employees are not included, nor are employees covered by a union contract or Academic Personnel Policies.
In order to recognize the extraordinary efforts by our policy-covered staff members during these challenging times, the University is providing a 3% general increase to all eligible employees. Increases will be effective June 27, 2021 for employees on bi-weekly payroll and July 1, 2021 for those paid monthly. The new rates will be reflected in the July 21 and August 1 paychecks.
Although individual increases under this year’s salary program are not merit-based, the importance of the performance review process should not be discounted as such employees must be meeting expectations in order to be eligible. All policy-covered staff must continue to receive performance reviews at least annually as required in Staff Personnel Policy (PPSM 23: Performance Management (PDF)).
Salary increases will be processed centrally by Campus Human Resources (CHR) or UCLA Health Human Resources (HHR).
