To ensure that the correct Career Progress Increment (CPI) is processed for faculty members in the annual Faculty Salary Increase process, administrators must check the accuracy of the CPI data for their faculty members by the end of March. Two CPI reports exist in HRMS that administrators will need to run so that they can check the CPI data for their faculty members.
Steps in the checking process:
What administrators should check for:
Any anomalies or errors need to be reported to Faculty Relations. Email communication is preferred – please remember to include Name & Employee ID.
If the CPI data for your unit has been thoroughly checked in previous years, then you will only need to check the above items. If the CPI for your unit has not been thoroughly checked then the CPI for each faculty member should be reviewed to ensure they are at the correct rank and year in rank. Any errors or anomalies affecting the July 2012 increase must be reported to Faculty Relations by (TBD).
Details of each of the two HRMS reports are as follows:
Report 24 – Career Progress Points: This report provides a list of active faculty members at the rank of 12-month Lecturer or higher, who have any CPI data entered on HRMS. The data appearing in each of the columns should be self-explanatory, however if you require further information on the fields refer to the descriptions in the CPI Report 24 Checking document.
Report 25 – Career Progress No Points: This report provides a list of active faculty members at the rank of 12-month Lecturer or higher who do NOT have CPI data entered on HRMS. Individuals appearing on this list may or may not be eligible for CPI.
The CPI reports may be run at anytime during the year, and may be run more than once. Remember that CPI for the current year will not be loaded until approximately early February. Also keep in mind that only faculty members who are active as of the date you run the report will appear.
Although only full-time faculty are eligible for CPI, both reports include full & part-time faculty members. This is so that Departments can use these reports to double-check that those members who should be receiving CPI are and that those members who are not eligible do not receive CPI. The full/part-time status is noted in the column entitled “FTE” – full-time faculty will have an FTE of 1.
For general information on CPI please refer to the Career Progress page.
Information on how to run queries can be found in Chapter 7 of the HRMS Navigation & Inquiry Guide.
Remember also that you can view complete CPI data for a faculty member on the Career Progress panel on HRMS, which is located under Workforce Development / Faculty Events / Track Events / Faculty Career Progress. Below is an example of the panel:
