UMS Nonexempt Pay Program

Perhaps the largest undertaking in designing and organizing the new Pay Program was developing job specifications to ensure that they included up-to-date information about the work performed in USM jobs. Many job specifications had not been updated for years and no longer reflected the actual knowledge, skills and abilities needed to perform various jobs. Beginning several years ago, the USM took an extensive look at job specifications across all campuses. This review allowed us to take into account the similarities and differences between the institutions and to create a set of job class specifications that easily could be used on each campus.

Nonexempt Job Class Specifications approved for the University System of Maryland (USM) Pay Program effective July 1, 1996.
