Contribution pay scheme timetable

Key dates and deadlines for the Contribution Pay Scheme

Contribution Pay scheme

Deadline Action
W/C 16 September to 28 November 2019 Faculties/Schools/Departments to organise local schemes
7 November 2019 Contribution Pay Review Group meets to consider Outstanding Contribution nominations (see Outstanding Contribution scheme below). Unsuccessful cases may be referred back to Faculties/Schools/Departments for consideration under their local Recognising Excellence schemes

Recognising Excellence scheme

Departments must choose whether to submit final award data for payment in either October, November or December’s payroll.

Data cannot be partially submitted across several months, all data must be provided in one submission.

Departments must be clear on the chosen closing date for submissions, and communicate this to employees.

October

If planning to submit for October payroll, Departments should take into consideration that the Outstanding Contribution panel meets in November, and that Outstanding Contribution cases can be referred back to the Departments for consideration under their Recognising Excellence scheme. This would not be possible if submissions have been made in time for October payroll as all information must be submitted at once.
