UC Davis Step Plus Salary Tables

The following Step Plus Salary Tables include the Step Plus Increment. This information is primarily meant for implementation by the academic personnel staff professionals.

  • The Step Plus Increment is a salary component equal to the half the difference between steps. The Step Plus Increment is eligible for range adjustment.
    • APHID: If the action is approved to a half-step, the Step Plus Increment should be entered by the Dean’s Office (redelegated actions) or Academic Affairs (non-redelegated actions) in the off-scale tab of APHID. This salary component is entered as “Step Plus Increment”. This salary component is retained as long as the candidate remains at this half-step. If a candidate has multiple titles to which the increment will apply, an increment entry will need to be added for each title. The appropriate percentage that the candidate holds each title should be entered into the Percent field, and the increment amount entered should reflect each title's salary scale. For candidates paid on School of Medicine salary scales, the amount entered for the increment should reflect the actual scale on which they are paid (i.e., 5-1, 5-2) rather than the base scale.
    • UCPath: The Step Plus Increment is entered into compensation using the appropriate comp rate code https://academicaffairs.ucdavis.edu/ucpath-guidance#Off-scale%20comp%20rate%20codes. 
  • The Step Plus Supplement was awarded only if a candidate advanced 1.5 steps or greater during the pilot (through the 2016-2017 review cycle), and was awarded only for the period of normative time at their new step. Supplements are no longer being awarded, and the last Supplements will expire on June 30, 2021.

Reminder: Order of Merits/Promotions and Range Adjustments

Reminder: Calculate Merit/promotion advancements prior to applying the range adjustment. Make advancement calculations on the salary scale prior to the range adjustment and then apply the range adjustment rules to the new salary.

For example, calculate the salary based on the merit decision using the most recent salary tables (7/1/2019, 10/1/2019 or 1/1/2020 salary scales) before applying any possible 7/1/2020 range adjustment.
