P&S Position Classification

The P&S position classification plan was developed and
continues to operate on the basis of position descriptions that
identify duties and responsibilities for P&S positions. Position
descriptions are prepared when new positions are created, are reviewed annually by the supervisor and employee, and are revised as required when position duties are restructured.

How Positions Are Evaluated

Position description materials allow the University to complete and maintain an evaluation of P&S positions on the basis of a point-rating comparison. The point-rating comparison results in each P&S position being assigned a numerical value and pay grade classification according to the following evaluation factors:

  1. Complexity of problems to be solved.
  2. Minimum skills and knowledge required.
  3. Interpersonal relationships ordinarily involved in day-to-day activities of the position.
  4. Organization levels at which interpersonal relationships ordinarily occur.
  5. Nature of responsibility exercised within the context of the overall operations of the University.
  6. Scope of functional responsibility exercised.
  7. Constraints on independent action within which the position functions.
  8. Impact of independent actions on the attainment of goals for educational programs and/or institutional development.
  9. Degree of work pace, pressure, and/or stress ordinarily involved in day-to-day activities of the position.
  10. Extent and frequency of exposure to risk of bodily injury or physical discomfort.
