m - Maximum of scale

c - CRPS (contribution related point)

  • The purpose of contribution-related pay is to reward individuals whose contribution, on a sustained basis, significantly exceeds that normally expected in their role in terms of output and performance. CRPS are available at the top of each grade and are awarded on a permanent basis. CRPS will replace the current system of discretionary points. Note that Grade 2 point 7 is also a CRP point. 

(*) This spinal point will benefit from any approved increases agreed by the Joint Negotiating Committee for Higher Education Staff (JNCHES) and any approved increases will be backdated to 01 April, of the applicable year, in accordance with the implementation date of the Locally Agreed Living Wage.
