The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018, restricts the amount of direct salary to Executive Level II of the Federal Executive pay scale. The Executive Level II salary was previously set at $187,000, and increased to $189,600 effective January 7, 2018.
The University encourages re-budgeting funds to accommodate the increase in salary cap when permissible, and adjustments should be effective February 1, 2018.
