University of California, San Diego

October 25, 1995
SUBJECT: Human Resource Management Initiatives (HRMI)
During the Fall of 1994 and the Spring of 1995, the first and second phase of consultation regarding the proposed changes of the Human Resource Management Initiatives (HRMI) were conducted.
We are now in the formal review process of the proposed new Personnel Policies for Staff Members. These policies consolidate the current four-tier staff personnel system (Staff, A&PS, MAP and Executive Program) into a single personnel policy system covering all levels of non-represented staff. This single body of personnel policies is proposed in response to the directions identified in the HRMI to help meet the strategic need to streamline and simplify the personnel system.
This set of proposed policies does not address in detail the implementation of long-term changes to the University's pay structures and classification systems, which will be incremental over time with ample opportunity for consultation and comment.
In an effort to ensure that the UCSD community has the opportunity to evaluate and provide comments during this formal review process of the proposed new Personnel Policies for Staff Members, the following steps are being taken:
o The Office of the President's "Human Resource Management
        Initiatives--Policy and Program Proposals" document is available through InfoPath. The new policies proposed under HRMI are now available on the World Wide Web at the following address: http://www.ucop.edu/ucophome/humres/spptoc.html
In addition, hard copies of these documents are available at the libraries and through the staff associations.
o Open forum sessions to discuss the proposed changes have been
scheduled as follows:
Thursday, November 2 12-1:30 pm SIO, 4500 Hubbs Hall Friday, November 3 12-1:30 pm IR/PS, Robinson
Building Complex Auditorium
Tuesday, November 7 12-1:30 pm Price Center, Ballroom A Wednesday, November 8 12-1:30 pm 111-A University Center,
Chancellor's Complex
o Focus groups, including representatives from each Vice
Chancellor's area, as well as representatives from staff associations and various other Human Resources-related committees, have been formed to review the documents and provide substantive feedback.
Please send your comments to Christine Marchetta via e:mail at christine_marchetta@human-resources@ucsd or via campus mail at 0922, by no later than Wednesday, November 15.
This notice is provided in accordance with HEERA guidelines and is being sent both electronically and by hard copy to ensure maximum distribution.
