Discretionary pay review 2011-12
The annual process is under way to review discretionary pay, covering the performance of staff on grades 1 to 9 in 2011-12.
The procedure for pay review is designed to reward exceptional performance, defined as "a level of performance that goes significantly beyond that which would normally be expected from a member of staff in their role". Actual recommendations will be made against specific criteria.
Any payments made to staff will be effective from 1 October 2012 and can include bonus payments to individuals or teams, accelerated increments and use of discretionary increments.
Collated submissions will be put forward to Human Resources from heads of schools and from heads of the professional services by 15 October.
These submissions will then be considered by a number of Pay Review Panels, which will make provisional decisions for pay awards, subject to approval at the Vice-Chancellor’s Executive Group.
During November Human Resources will write to all staff receiving an award, and payment will be made in November pay packets.
A separate process of discretionary pay review is also being run for the professoriate, following the same timescale as above.
