Agreements between the State and CSEA, DC-37 and PEF provide for the payment of performance advances to employees who serve at least one year, but not more than one and one-half years, before a performance advance is paid.


Performance advances are payable to employees in the bargaining units noted above whose base annual salary is below the job rate for their current position, who complete one year of service in such position by September 30, 2000, and who were rated "Satisfactory" or its equivalent on their last annual evaluation date.

OSC Automatic Actions: Period 14L


OSC will automatically apply the performance advance, from the appropriate April 1, 2000 CSEA, DC-37 or PS&T Salary Schedule, based on the four digit increment code in the employee’s record (new increment code chart attached). The Action/Reason code will be either Pay Rt Chg/Perf Adv (PAV), for employees with an increment code of 1001, or Pay Rt Chg/Prom Recal (PRM), for employees with an increment code of 1004 and an effective date of 9/28/2000 (Administration) and (10/5/2000) Institution.

The performance advance row will be inserted in the employee’s record after OSC has approved all Job Requests submitted for period 14L.

NS employees who are equated to a grade will not receive automatic performance advances.
