Manager and Senior Professionals (MSPs) provide leadership and professional expertise at the highest levels to major UC Davis and UC Davis Health units, programs or fields of work, and are accountable for their areas of responsibility.
Positions at this level are responsible for identifying objectives, formulating strategy, directing programs, managing resources and functioning effectively with a high degree of autonomy.
There are no classification specifications for MSP titles. Decisions about proper classification and MSP salary grade are based on the level of responsibility assigned to a position, comparison to similar positions, and labor market data.
The MSP program is administered by the Office of the Senior Associate Vice Chancellor of Human Resources. Recruitment requests, affirmative action reports, appointment approvals, and requests for stipends, equity increases and re-classifications are routed to the Office of the Senior Associate Vice Chancellor of Human Resources for final approval.
