Human Resources Compensation

Welcome to the Human Resources Compensation homepage. You will find helpful resources detailing the compensation programs for University staff and employees in non-academic titles. The University of Oklahoma programs are designed to attract, retain, and motivate a highly talented and committed workforce in support of the University of Oklahoma’s mission and goals.

The Compensation department offers services that include the design, implementation, and revisions of the University’s compensation programs, salary structures, job analysis, position management, and compensation guidelines. Our goal is to be a strategic partner by providing assistance with compensation solutions, compensation policy and procedure interpretations, job classifications, and the performance review cycle. 

Personnel Review Cycle (PRC)

Personnel Review Cycle (PRC) – Personnel Review Cycle (PRC) is a preliminary submission cycle for all regular staff employee job changes, salary adjustments, and new position requests for Fiscal Year 2025. The PRC is an annual planning activity, allowing department leaders to holistically review regular staff positions and staffing needs and submit personnel requests to address departmental needs. Submissions for personnel requests will be reviewed by leadership, finance, and subject matter experts for consideration before routing to HR Compensation for evaluation and authorization to proceed with their request. After Compensation’s evaluation, initiators will be notified of the final determination of their request and authorization to proceed to the next step.  

Authorization Notice – Beginning in May, departments receiving authorization to proceed with their personnel requests will submit a Preauthorization (Pre-Auth 1) for final approval by HR Compensation.. All approved changes will require the submission of a Pre-Auth 2 with an effective on or after September 1, 2024.  To avoid delays in process, please review the Compensation Guidelines by Transaction Type Guide before submitting, this will ensure you submit all the required documents.

Rejection Notice – If a department is not authorized to proceed with their personnel request, they may resubmit their request for reconsideration through the exception process. The exception process requires prior approval for reconsideration from President Harroz, the appropriate Senior Vice President (Sr. VP and Provost Wright, Sr. VP and Provost Raskob, or Sr. VP and CFO Brockwell), or their designee. If you would like to discuss the department's situation before requesting reconsideration, contact HR Compensation at
