In-Range Progression (IRP)
An In-Range Progression (IRP) is a salary increase within either a salary range for a single classification or a sub-range of a classification with skill levels. When the campus president, the president’s designee, or appropriate administrator determines that an IRP should occur, the salary shall increase by at least three percent.
Either the employee or the appropriate administrator may submit a request for an IRP review. A management-initiated request may cover more than one employee. An employee-initiated request should be submitted to the appropriate administrator before it goes to Human Resources. If your administrator does not forward the request to HR within 30 days, you can file the request directly.
An IRP may be granted for reasons that include, but are not limited to:
- assigned application of enhanced skill(s)
- out-of-classification work that does not warrant a reclassification
-new lead work or new project coordination functions given to an employee on an on-going basis by an appropriate administrator, when the classification standards do not specifically list lead work as a typical duty or responsibility
-other salary-related criteria
An IRP review shall be completed within 90 days after HR receives the request. If you receive a denial of the request, the campus shall provide a written reason for the denial.
If the IRP was denied solely due to a lack of funds, the application shall be re-evaluated in the following fiscal year upon the employee’s request.
You may submit an IRP request no more than once every 12 months.
