Academic Merit Payments

Please note that the annual processes relating to the above are now underway.  Deans have been advised of the eligibility of staff as appropriate and requested to put forward recommendations.

Pending the outcome of current negotiations with the academic trades union on the new pay and reward arrangements for academic staff, this year’s round of L to SL progressions and promotions and award of merit payments will be in accordance with the criteria used in previous years, copies of which have been forwarded to Deans.  For this year all merit payments will be in the form of a lump sum,  of equivalent value to an increment.

The closing date for recommendations for L to SL progressions and promotions is 5 October and for merit payment recommendations it is 19 October.  Progressions and promotions to SL will be effective from 1 September 2007.

Enquiries about the processes should be directed to Nancy Garlick in HR on ext 5107, email
