In years when the UC President approves merit pay for non-represented staff, the Pay for Performance (P4P) program offers compensation to employees that is aligned with their level of performance during the appraisal period. 

For reference, we've provided the guidelines from 2018-19.
These guidelines will be updated if a merit program is approved for 2019-20.
