Annual Follow-Up Agency Response From January 2009

As noted in the above status summary, CIRM commissioned a new salary survey designed to correct the deficiencies identified by BSA. The survey was presented to ICOC at its March 2008 meeting. In response to the survey, the ICOC approved adjustments to CIRM's salary structure. That salary structure groups all positions into 10 salary levels, and provides the salary range for each level. Positions are assigned to salary levels on the basis of the salary survey data. When CIRM has created new positions that were not included in the Mercer survey, those positions were assigned to a salary level by comparing the duties and qualifications to those of existing positions.
