2019-20 Call for Applications (sent April 1, 2019)


April 1, 2019

Subject: Call for Applications for the 2019-20 Negotiated Salary Trial Program


Dear Colleagues,

It’s that time of the year to submit requests to participate in the continuing Negotiated Salary Trial Program (NSTP).

Like the well-established Health Sciences Compensation Plan (HSCP), the NSTP is a flexible compensation program that allows general campus ladder-rank and in-residence faculty in participating schools and divisions to voluntarily contribute external funding resources towards their total UC salary. The amount of negotiated salary has a cap of 30% of the base salary and must be funded through extramural sources such as gift income, research contract and grant funds, and other non-state-appropriated funds. The total UC salary rate is effective for a one-year period corresponding with the University fiscal cycle of July 1 through June 30. Since its inception in 2013, the NSTP has provided a process for faculty participants to secure market competitive salaries.

As announced last year, the trial program has been extended through June 2022, with fiscal year 2022-23 as a transition year should the program be terminated. Fiscal year 2019-20 is the second year of the extended trial. To participate, eligible faculty members must be in good standing with regard to teaching, research, and service obligations, and stay compliant with all applicable University policies, procedures, and training requirements. For more information about the program, go to: https://apo.ucla.edu/compensation/nstp/nstp.

The deadline for submitting NSTP requests to the Academic Personnel Office (APO) is July 15, 2019. All compensation request forms must be completed, signed, and sent electronically to Rong Jiang at [email protected] by the July 15 deadline. Requests submitted after the deadline will be automatically rejected without being reviewed.

For additional information or assistance, please contact Rong by phone at x63687 or through email at [email protected].
