Under this plan, salary is based on rank and step (base X), Academic Program Unit (APU) or affiliation (X’), and a negotiated Y component where applicable. Combined, these three components comprise the annual salary. In addition, the HSCP, APM 671, APM 025 outline whether outside or non-UC San Diego activities are allowable, and which require advanced approval.
