Classified salary administration plan

The VCU classified salary administration plan outlines how the university implements the commonwealth of Virginia’s classified compensation management system. This plan outlines specifically how the university implements job evaluation, compensation and performance management. The salary administration plan is the foundation for ensuring consistent application of compensation management and job evaluation decisions. The plan will help prevent employee disputes based on misapplication of policy and it will assist the university in monitoring and evaluating the classified compensation management process.

VCU evaluates classified and wage positions using the commonwealth’s classification system (whole job evaluation method). Positions are assigned to roles (known as “Position Classes” in Banner) that encompass a broad group of occupation-related jobs that represent varying levels of work and are further distinguished using the federal Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system (in Banner, known as federal Occupational Title Code or “OTC”).
