Re:        UCLA Negotiated Salary Trial Program Participation


As you know, the Office of the President authorized UCLA to implement the Negotiated Salary Trial Program (“NSTP”) effective July 1, 2013.  This is a five-year pilot program that allows ladder and in-residence faculty in participating schools and divisions to voluntarily contribute external funding resources toward their total UC salary.  Currently the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health and the Division of Life Sciences in the College of Letters and Science are active participants in the program.  I am pleased to inform you that this program will be made available for other interested schools and divisions at UCLA beginning July 1, 2014. 


In order to participate, please submit your email request to me no later than January 31, 2014.  I will review your request and confer with the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Scott Waugh; upon approval of the request, you will be contacted.  For your convenience, below is the link to program information as well as FAQ’s:


Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have additional questions or concerns.  I look forward to your response. You may send responses to Bonnie MacDougall at
