The compensation program for Executive Branch employees shall be designed to support the mission of the State and the agencies within the Executive Branch. The foundation of the compensation program is the legislatively adopted compensation philosophy which is intended to attract and retain quality employees with competitive compensation based on relevant labor markets.

The compensation program and its component plans shall be based upon principles of fairness and equity and shall be administered with sound fiscal discipline. The compensation program and its component plans shall reinforce a productive work climate, a culture of accountability and encourage employees to achieve their career potential with the State.

Value of Compensation shall be based both on principles of internal equity as measured by a defensible method of job evaluation and external value as measured by competitive compensation in the relevant market.
