Calibration

JOB MAPPING: In the summer and early fall, more than 10,500 of UA’s classified staff and appointed positions have been mapped to the career architecture by their supervisor. FUNCTIONAL CALIBRATION: In the fall, more than 40 functional calibration sessions were held. In functional calibration UCAP brought together subject matter experts to review jobs with like responsibilities to ensure consistent leveling and placement across 25 job functions. ORGANIZATIONAL CALIBRATION: We are currently completing organization calibration. Organizational calibration brings college or division leadership together to review mapping across functions within a college or division to ensure consistent leveling and placement in the appropriate job functions and families.

What is Calibration?

Calibration is the process where the UCAP project team, in collaboration with University leadership and managers, will review position mapping at the organizational and functional level to identify mapping trends and outliers.

With your help over the past few months, the University community has worked to define UCAP jobs using consistent definitions of function, family and career levels, rather than using generic titles such as "coordinator" or "manager". A clearly defined architecture, in addition to external market data, will help evaluate equitable pay across the University in positions that perform similar work. The next step in the process will be similar to job mapping, but with a closer evaluation across functions and families.

In the calibration phase, UCAP continues to serve as a comprehensive platform for supporting career growth across the University. As the project continues to move forward, the UCAP team will:

  • Meet with leaders across campus, both at a functional and organizational level, to validate job mapping, and identify or correct any misalignments
  • Review how jobs are distributed within career streams and levels, and across functions and families, in partnership with organizational leadership

UCAP would like to thank the University community for continuing to provide feedback, and ensuring the architecture is both market referenced and reflective of the University of Arizona.
