A Market Wage Study for the University of Central Florida: Final Report, Revised / MGT of America (July 5, 2001) is available in the UCF Library at the Reserve Desk (around the counter from Book Return/Book Checkout) listed under MWS2001. The study compared the pay scales of most USPS classifications with the Central Florida labor market. It provides an update to a 1995 study which is not available in the library.
UCF Institutional Research Fact Books provide historic data from 1983-84 through 2002-03 in the fiscal information section for average salaries by rank of 9-month and 12-month faculty at UCF. The College of Arts & Sciences data is provided by Department for all years; the other colleges provide departmental data beginning with 1996-97 information in the Three Year Fact Book for 1994-1997.
UCF Operating Budget - The paper copy of the most recent budget is available in the UCF Library at the Reference Desk and at the Reserve Desk; a CD-ROM version is available in the Florida Documents cabinet. The operating budgets for previous years are available in the Florida Documents Collection at UCF.OB: from 1975 forward. The operating budget includes separate line entries for each employee's salary by position and name in Section III - Details of Salaries. The online versions of UCF Operating Budgets do not include the Details of Salaries section.
2001-2003 Statewide Salary Data [Contact UCF's Ask A Librarian regarding alternative resources.] The files for all employees within the eleven state universities in Florida are no longer available. The salary data was available online through a United Faculty of Florida file of public records data retrieved from the State University System Personnel Employee Records System (SUPERS). The state-wide collective bargaining agreement between the United Faculty of Florida and the Board of Regents/Dept of Education provided UFF with access to the SUPERS database which covered salaries from all universities. With the transition to separate BOTs at each university, there is no longer any statewide data source. The last time it was possible to update the statewide UFF files was spring 2003, so they were eventually pulled. The initial page described the raw data found on the subsequent pages for in-unit (teaching & research faculty, librarians, scholars, scientists, engineers, research associates, coordinators, counselors, advisors, physicians, physician's assistants, etc.) and out-of-unit (executives, administrators, USPS, etc.).
