Subject: M&P Compensation Review – Pay Grade and Salary Administration, Effective January 1, 2014

This provides an update on the M&P Compensation Review implementation, and is further to our memo of Dec. 16, 2013 (

We are targeting February 28, 2014, for implementation of changes resulting from the M&P Compensation Review.  This includes salary grade changes, salary adjustments, and retro payments (back to January 1, 2014), where applicable.  Note that this is a target date only, and we will keep you apprised of the actual date of implementation.

The spreadsheet that you will receive for your faculty/department lists the M&P staff in your faculty/department whose salary grades and/or salary will change as a result of this round of the Compensation Review.  In addition, a list of definitions will be provided to assist you in interpreting information from the spreadsheet.

If changes/corrections to your spreadsheet are required, please notify Joyce Wei ( by Feb. 7, 2014 at the latest.

Those staff members whose salary will be adjusted as a result of the change in salary grade will receive a memo from HR.  M&P staff members whose salary will not be impacted even though there is a change in salary grade will not receive a memo.  The target date for these memos is Feb. 21, 2014.

Additional information about the M&P Compensation Review is available on the Human Resources website at  This includes background information and FAQs for staff members and Administrators.

At UBC Vancouver, central will provide funding to cover the market adjustments in Administrative units, Library, Graduate and post-Doctoral Studies in Operating funds (excluding Ancillary).  Funding will be allocated to the impacted unit once HR and Payroll compete the adjustments in HRMS.
