General:

Vice Presidents must submit final recommendations to Payroll for review on Monday, November 10, 2014.

The performance period covered by this award is July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014

To be eligible employees must have been employed in the professional services negotiating unit represented by UUP on June 30, 2014 or April 30, 2014 for part-time employees whose employment expires prior to July 1, 2014) and active or on a paid leave at the time of payment.  If an employee is terminated or on a leave without pay at the time of payment they are not eligible for the payment. Both full-time and part-time employees are eligible.

Brockport's 1/2% discretionary pool will be determined towards the end of September*.  The President will withhold $10,000 from the pool for campus wide and/or extraordinary awards leaving the remainder of the pool for distribution to defined areas.  Amounts associated with campus wide and/or extraordinary awards will be unrestricted.  The pool will be distributed to defined areas via the following formula:  FTE of eligible employees in defined area/FTE of eligible employees at campus multiplied by pool amount.  As the pool is ½% which is one half of the past practice and per recommendation of the Professional Roles and Rewards Committee, the minimum award for professional employees has been modified in half and will be $500 and academic employees may receive awards at the $400, $500, or $600 level.  Defined areas are:  Academic Affairs, Administration and Finance, Advancement, Enrollment Management & Student Affairs, College Communications, and REOC.

Employees: (1) may be nominated or, (2) may self-nominate.

Nominations for Professional Employees must include an evaluation for the period 7/1/2013 to 6/30/2014 with a cover letter, or, if necessary, with a DSA justification (maximum of 2 additional typewritten pages). Nominations, based this year on performance in the performance program, should be submitted to Unit Heads ranked in priority order, if applicable.  Unit Heads will then review the nominations and forward them to a review committee (each VP should designate) ranked in priority order.  The review committee will review and rank all of the nominations for a VPs area and submit them to their VP for final action. The VPs will advise their committee of the DSA pool amount available to their division. 

Nominations for Academic Employees, including Librarians, will be in accordance with past processes.  The APT committee will review nominations (including self-nominations) first, and then the Chair and the Dean will review nominations.  APT committees will rank nominations and the chairs and deans will add their rankings.  The Deans will then meet with the VP for Academic Affairs to finalize their DSA recommendations to the President.

Critical deadlines for meeting imposed mandate to pay awards in payroll number 18, checks dated December 17, 2014.
