Factor 2: Supervisory Responsibility

Level 2 - 598 Points: Irregular but occasional responsibility to direct the work of student workers and/or temporary or part-time workers. At this level are jobs in which the incumbent may be asked to supervise small numbers of student workers, graduate assistants, or part-time employees, but the supervisory work is irregular or infrequent. The nature of supervision is largely confined to assigning tasks to others and does not include a full range of supervisory responsibilities.

Factor 3: Skill, Complexity, and Technical Mastery

Level 4 - 1300 Points: Knowledge of information technology such as could be acquired through experience or classroom-based course work in either vendor-focused or technology specific training such as Oracle, HTML, Java, or Extensible Markup Language. Knowledge permits the employee to carry out routine assignments and to gain familiarity with operating systems, equipment, software, and business goals of the University. Alternatively, knowledge of established processes, methods, and techniques, as well as practical knowledge of a few specific technical and scientific principles. Alternatively, advanced knowledge of a skilled trade to solve unusually complex problems. Knowledge permits the employee to schedule and carry out the steps of a limited operation or project to complete important stages in a multi-step project.

Factor 4: Budgetary Control

Level 1 - 193 Points: Jobs at this level involve no budgetary control except for the normal responsibilities associated with monitoring and reporting everyday expenses.

Factor 5: Work Environment and Physical Demands

Level 1 - 25 Points: The work environment has only everyday discomforts associated with an office or commercial vehicle. The work area is adequately lighted, heated or cooled, and ventilated. Work is largely sedentary involving mostly sitting with occasional walking, standing, bending, or carrying of small items. No special physical demands are required of the work.

Factor 6: Work Impact and Effect

Level 2 - 1620 Points: Work products or services impact the accuracy, reliability, or acceptability of further processes or services. Work activities may be complex, but normally involve addressing conventional problems or situations with established methods to supply departments, programs, classes, or units with information, software, or equipment they use to perform their work. Improperly performed work and/or equipment or software failures affect performance, create delays, and/or otherwise affect the welfare of programs or individuals. While improperly performed work and/or equipment or software failures have significant effects, the effects are more often inconvenient rather than severe and impact relatively few people. Improperly performed work and/or equipment or software failures are normally correctable in the short-to-medium term with relatively minor costs and delays, but emergency repairs are typically unavailable.
