Human Resources has announced that workforce planning for FY2010 will move forward but has been modified for this year because of the uncertainty of the budget.

Workforce planning is the opportunity to submit reclassification and salary equity requests for classified staff and service professionals. This year only requests that address employees who are misclassified (and the associated compression adjustments) can be submitted and reviewed for possible adjustment.

Without adding significant dollars to the base budget, this modified process will allow the university to address the most critical classification issues for staff. This process is expected to begin no later than January, with corresponding adjustments to be effective not earlier than July 2010. Workforce planning is contingent on funding availability and is subject to change based on budget circumstances.

As a result of budget reductions, the university delayed FY08 workforce planning adjustments by six months from July 2008 to January 2009 and suspended the workforce planning cycle for FY09.
