Due to severe budget constraints, CEA salary increases will be limited effective immediately and until further notice. The Department of Personnel Administration (DPA) PML 2006-006 is rescinded and the following shall apply:
CEA 1 $6,173 - $7,838
CEA 2 $7,815 - $8,616
CEA 3 $8,594 - $9,476
CEA 4 $9,018 - $9,939
CEA 5 $9,544 - $13,381
The maximum rate for non-attorneys, non-engineers, and non-physicians is $10,520.
DPA is conducting an audit to ensure that salaries above CEA Level 5 are restricted to Attorneys, Engineers, and Physicians, or are DPA approved exceptions. Additional salary policies may be forthcoming based on the results of that audit.
The Governor’s Office may authorize an increase for an Exempt appointee. DPA will provide a recommendation for the Governor’s Office consideration. Departments must submit Exempt Position Requests to DPA as well as to the Governor’s Office. Approval will be limited and justified on a case-by-case basis.
