CSI Project – Professional Staff Jobs
Implementation is delayed until early 2007.
Objective: to install a fair and rational compensation system for Professional Staff jobs across Indiana University, with objective criteria for management decisions regarding employee pay.
The last review of IU’s salary administration program for Professional Staff positions was almost 20 years ago. There are now over 5,500 Professional Staff positions, many with unique sets of responsibilities, and it is important that the CSI project deliver quality results that meet the university’s needs.
While significant work has been completed, the CSI project team needs additional input from schools and other units to obtain a better understanding of the responsibilities and roles of certain positions. As a result, implementation is delayed so that the project team can work with new advisory groups and hold additional meetings with RCs and departments. The insights and input from these meetings are expected to provide the project team with a firm understanding of responsibilities assigned to positions.
This project was delayed for almost a year in 2004/2005, while the university completed an analysis of FLSA overtime-eligible status for approximately 2,000 Professional Staff positions. (Approximately 900 positions became overtime-eligible as a result of the new FLSA regulations.) Delaying implementation to early 2007 is important to ensuring that project deliverables meet the needs of management across the university.
