A Biennial Report on the State’s Position Classification Plan for the 2016-2017 Biennium
Report Number 15-701
The State Auditor's Office conducted a study of the State's Position Classification Plan (Plan) to determine the competitiveness of the Plan with similar positions in the private and public sector and to determine whether changes are needed to maintain a current and competitive structure for state agencies to classify and compensate their employees.
The State Auditor's Office's recommended changes to the Plan include:
- Adding 73 new job classifications to the Plan to provide additional job classifications for state agencies to use.
- Reallocating 35 job classifications to a higher salary group to address positions with salary ranges that are below the market.
- Changing job titles for 13 job classifications to better describe job functions.
- Deleting 6 job classifications that are not being used.
The estimated cost to state agencies to implement the recommended changes is $3,471,741 in each year of the 2016-2017 biennium. If the Legislature adopts the recommendations, agencies will be required to implement the recommendations.
