Memorandum
Date: Jan. 27, 2014
From: Michelle Berner, Director – HR, Total Compensation; Kathleen Cheng, Manager, Compensation
To: Faculty/Department Administrators
CC: Human Resources Advisory Services, Trang Nguyen, Management Reporting and Budgeting
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 (http://www.hr.ubc.ca/memos/implementation-of-the-mp-compensation-review-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 (joyce.wei@ubc.ca) 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 http://www.hr.ubc.ca/compensation/mp-compensation-review/.  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.

Queries may be directed as follows:

  • Staff questions, as well as Administrators’ questions aside from those outlined above, may be directed to: compensation@hr.ubc.ca.  An HR representative will respond on a priority basis.
  • Inquiries pertaining to Operating funds may be directed to Trang Nguyen in Management Reporting and Budgeting at trang.nguyen@ubc.ca.

Thank you
