Vice Presidents must submit final recommendations to the President for review on Monday, October 24, 2011. The performance period covered by this award is July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011.

To be eligible employees must have been employed in the professional services negotiating unit represented by UUP on June 30, 2011 (during the spring 2011 semester for academic year employees) and be continuing in service. Both full-time and part-time employees are eligible.

Brockport's 1% discretionary pool has been determined to be $461,755. The President will withhold $20,000 from the pool for campus wide and/or extraordinary awards leaving $441,755 for distribution to defined areas. Amounts associated with campus wide and/or extraordinary awards will be unrestricted. The $441,755 pool will be distributed to defined areas via the following formula: FTE of eligibles in defined area / FTE of eligibles at campus X $441,755. Per recommendation of the Professional Roles and Rewards Committee, the minimum award for professional employees will be $1,000 and academic employees may receive awards at the $800, $1,000, or $1,200 level. Defined areas are: Academic Affairs, Administration and Finance, Advancement, Enrollment Management & Student Affairs.

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

Nominations for Professional Employees must include an evaluation for the period 7/1/2010 to 6/30/2011 with a cover letter, or, if necessary, with a DSI justification (maximum of two 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 DSI 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 DSI recommendations to the President.

Critical deadlines for meeting imposed mandate to pay awards in payroll #17, checks dated December 7, 2011.
