A Biennial Report on the State's Position Classification Plan for the 2014-2015 Biennium

September 2012

Report Number 13-701

Overall Conclusion

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:

- Reallocating 64 job classifications to a higher salary group to address positions with salary ranges that are behind the market.

- Adding 21 new job classifications to the Plan to provide additional job classifications for state agencies to use.

- Changing job titles for 12 job classifications to better describe job functions.

- Deleting 7 job classifications that are not being used.

The estimated cost to state agencies to implement the recommended changes is $3,399,925 in each year of the 2014-2015 biennium. If the Legislature adopts the recommendations, agencies will be required to implement the recommendations.
