FAC Proposed Allocation of Department Merit Awards to Rank Ordered Candidates

Ballots with the FAC determination of rank order in each of the categories will be distributed to members of the FAC. Members will divide the total Department “salary pool” for each category among the candidates for an excellence award in that category. Distribution of salary pool funds must be done in whole dollar amounts. The total amount of funds distributed in each category must maintain the FAC rank order of candidates. The total distribution of funds in any category must not exceed the total “salary pool” for that category. Ballots that violate these rules will be discarded from consideration. Completed ballots for proposed allocation of department merit awards of the salary pool to rank ordered candidates must be submitted to the Department Chair in accordance with the applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement and with the procedures and timelines for determining Merit Awards for any given year.
