Administrative, Professional, and Technical (APT) Employees

Administrative, professional, and technical (APT ) employees are professional-level, non-faculty support positions that normally require a bachelor's degree or higher. Types of APT jobs include fiscal officers, educational specialists, information technology specialists, engineers and architects, student services specialists and other professional support positions. (BOR Reference Guide, May 2011)

The APT Broadband System, implemented on April 22, 2002, consolidated 240 existing classes of work into 12 APT career groups and correlated 17 existing pay ranges into 4 bands. This system currently provides opportunities for in-grade adjustments (increase to base salary) to recognize professional growth, performance awards (lump sum bonus) to reward work performance that exceeds performance expectations and the hiring above the designated new hire rate. (OHR Presentation at CUPA-HR National Conference and Expo, 2003)

Administrative Procedure A9.210, Classification and Compensation Plan for Administrative, Professional and Technical (APT) Personnel , delineates the conditions under which classification requests should be submitted and provides procedures to follow when submitting classification and compensation requests.

Administrative Procedure A9.170, Performance Evaluation of Administrative, Professional and Technical (APT) Personnel , allows both the supervisor and employee the opportunity to collaboratively establish performance expectations and to actively participate in the performance evaluation process. The performance evaluation is a continuous process which benefits both the employee and the University.

Information Technology
The Information Technology Demonstration Project initiated a unique classification and compensation approach for the University's IT professionals on November 1, 2000. The project provides flexibility in salary determination and recognition for professional growth and exceptional performance. While the Project merged with the APT Broadband System in 2006, IT positions continue to maintain an independent salary placement process. PDF icon
