Compensation Effective April 1, 2011 and April 1, 2012

Purpose

This document provides instructions for the determination of salaries within the new salary ranges approved by Treasury Board effective April 1, 2011 and April 1, 2012, for members of the Executive (EX) Group.

Instructions for Implementation of Salary Increases for the EX Group

1. General

Effective April 1, 2011, salary ranges for the Executive Group are increased by one point seventy-five percent (1.75%) and effective April 1, 2012 by one point five percent (1.5%). Tables in Annex show the new salary ranges for the EX Group.

For purposes of implementing these compensation improvements, departments must follow the instructions below as well as the Treasury Board Policy on the Management of Executives.

2. Salary Affected

The increase effective April 1, 2011 is to be applied to the individual's base pay that was in effect on April 1, 2011, after any changes that resulted from the application of the Performance Management Program (PMP) for the 2010-2011 fiscal year.

The increase effective April 1, 2012 is to be applied to the individual's base pay that was in effect on April 1, 2012 after any changes that resulted from the application of the PMP for the 2011-2012 fiscal year.

Departments must ensure that any PMP lump sum performance awards are based upon the salary in effect on the last day of the performance cycle (i.e. March 31st), and before the application of the respective salary increases.

3. Salary Treatment – General

For fiscal year 2010-2011, provided that performance was assessed as either level 2, 3, 4, 5 or "unable to assess'', executive salaries should maintain their positioning relative to the job rate within the new salary ranges. With this approach, the salary of an individual whose performance has been given one of these ratings will be increased by adding to it the full one point seventy-five percent (1.75%) increase effective April 1, 2011.

For fiscal year 2011-2012, provided that performance was assessed as either level 2, 3, 4, 5 or ''unable to assess'', executive salaries should also maintain their positioning relative to the job rate within the new salary ranges. With this approach, the salary of an individual whose performance has been given one of these ratings will be increased by adding to it the full one point five percent (1.5%) increase effective April 1, 2012.

For the purposes of retroactive salary treatment calculations, these instructions are effective as of July 29, 2011.

Eligibility for economic increase

Performance Rating Economic Increase
Unable to assess Yes
Level 1 - Did not meet No
Level 2 - Succeeded – Yes
Level 3 - Succeeded Yes
Level 4 - Succeded + Yes
Level 5 - Surpassed Yes

4. Salary Treatment – Specific Circumstances

For executives in a variety of specific circumstances, salary treatments are provided in Article 3 of Appendix B of the Treasury Board Directive on Executive Compensation

5. Rounding of Salary Calculations

Salaries that were at the salary maximum on March 31 should be increased to the new salary maximum. In the interest of ensuring consistency across the Core Public Administration, departments must round all salary calculations to the nearest multiple of $100. Salary calculations ending in 50 must be rounded up to the next multiple of $100.

Reporting to the Treasury Board Secretariat

No report to the Treasury Board Secretariat is required. However, we will continue to require the annual PMP report.

Contacts

Questions related to the application of these compensation adjustments should be referred to the Contact Executive Management by email: Executive Management Policies Interpretations Team, Treasury Board Secretariat.
