Classification Resources

Budget Title and Salary Level are synonymous. For example, the budget title of Staff Assistant will always have a salary level of SL2; we cannot change the salary level of the budget title Staff Assistant to SL3, this would require a change in budget title to change salary level. Local title can be different than a budget title to more aesthetically reflect the duties of the position. When an appropriate budget title exists and accurately reflects the duties of a position, we should use the budget title.
