Ensuring that the classification and compensation for any employee is equally fair to both employee and employer. The compensation plan administrative guidelines apply to non-faculty staff employees of Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU). They do not apply to faculty personnel. These guidelines define the operation of the pay program for the covered positions (see Appendix A & Appendix B for list of positions) and take precedence over any other understanding, implied or otherwise. In the event of any conflict between these administrative guidelines and the PVAMU Administrative Procedures, the latter shall prevail.
