Acting Rates

An acting rate is considered when a staff member assumes significant duties from a higher graded position for an extended period of time (minimum 2 months) while typically continuing to perform current duties. An acting rate can not exceed 10% of staff member’s current salary.
It can not be approved beyond 6 months at which time it will need to be reviewed again if the duties are still being performed.

For consideration of an acting rate the following must be provided:

  • A current PIQ.
  • A letter from the department chair or director describing the additional duties to be performed by the employee, the reason why they will be performing the duties and for how long.
