UC DAVIS SUMMER SESSIONS Mechanisms for Summer Compensation Provost’s January 2014 Decisions re Summer Sessions in the Budget Model Deans have delegated authority for approving summer compensation, adhering to academic personnel policy and monitoring limits of summer compensation. This authority previously resided with the Summer Sessions office. The UC Davis ladder salary cap for summer is a prudent guideline but not a rule or policy. Deans have the authority to determine appropriate compensation within the constraints of UC policies. (The Summer Sessions salary cap guideline remains $10,400.)
UC DAVIS SUMMER SESSIONS Mechanisms for Summer Compensation Provost’s January 2014 Decisions re Summer Sessions in the Budget Model (Continued) All summer session compensation should adhere to the current Summer Sessions formula (2.75 percent per unit taught) to the extent appropriate; this formula is a guideline and not a rule or policy.

Lecturers must be paid according to Article 23 –Summer Sessions of the IX contract and compensation for those in Teaching Assistants and Associates In titles must follow the compensation formula as bargained in Article 24 –Summer Session of the BX contract. All other requirements for recruitment and selection for summer sessions positions for these appointees must follow the article of the contract.

All recalls for summer session teaching must be within the 43% monthly limit for total recall salary
UC DAVIS SUMMER SESSIONS Employee Titles Recalled Instructors Before recall is submitted, calculate total compensation for ALL courses being taught by recalled instructor Once current annual salary for recalled instructor is obtained, use the following formula to determine the max monthly allotted amount: Annual Retirement Salary/9 (X) 43% Example: if annual is $103,000… $103,000/9 (X).043 = $4,921 maximum monthly amount If this person is teaching one 4-unit course… $103,000 (X) 4 (X).0275 = $11,330 This amount divided by two = $5,665, which is higher than $4,921 max monthly amount. If divided by three = $3,777, which is lower than $4,921
