Personnel Policies for Staff Members (PPSM) and UCSF Local Implementing Procedures

University of California staff employees in non-represented titles (Professional and Support Staff (PSS) and Managers and Senior Professionals (MSP)) are covered by both UC Systemwide Personnel Policies for Staff Members (PPSM) and UCSF local implementing procedures. In combination, these policies and procedures are designed to inform non-represented employees about the expectations and entitlements of the University with regard to their employment. (Note: Employees represented by a union are not covered by PPSM. Please refer to the applicable collective bargaining agreement for represented employees.)

  • UCSF Implementing Procedures (for Professional and Support Staff, Managers and Senior Professionals):

These UCSF procedures correspond to Personnel Policies for Staff Members (PPSM) and provide additional guidance and implementing procedures for the Systemwide Personnel Policies for Staff Members (PPSM).  UCSF local procedures should be read in conjunction with the appropriate PPSM policy. Please note: There is not a Local PPSM Policy provided for every Systemwide PPSM Policy.


Policies for Formal Review/Employee Comment Period

  • Formal Review/ Employee Comment Period: Presidential Policy on Supplement to Military Pay

The University invites comments on the Draft Revised Presidential Policy on Supplement to Military Pay - Four-Year Renewal. The Presidential Policy on Supplement to Military Pay applies to all University academic and staff employees.

The proposal provides eligible employees with supplemental payments equal to the difference between the employees’ University pay and their active military duty pay for a period not to exceed the employee’s tour of active military duty, until June 30, 2022, or until the separation date of an employee’s University appointment, whichever comes first. Benefits provided under the Policy are subject to a two-year lifetime limit. The proposed revisions renew the current Policy for a four-year period, effective July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2022.

The revised Policy reflecting the proposed four-year renewal is posted for review under the “Systemwide Review” tab at: http://www.ucop.edu/academic-personnel-programs/academic-personnel-policy/policies-under-review/uc-military-pay-policy.html

Employees covered by this policy who wish to provide comments may send their comments to [email protected]. The deadline for employee comments is no later than Monday, April 30, 2018.
