Welcome to Compensation Reform

Following several years of research and planning by the Commission on Reform of the Classified Compensation Plan, the 2000 Virginia General Assembly passed legislation, and Governor Jim Gilmore signed into law, a sweeping revision of the state's 40 year-old employee compensation system. The new performance-based compensation plan is modeled after the most successful "best practices" now being used by major corporations and governmental entities on the national, state and local levels. On September 25, 2000, the new compensation plan took effect, bringing with it new pay practices, greater opportunities for career growth within state government, greater management flexibility and accountability and new ways to recognize and reward exceptional employee performance and acquired skills. This site is designed to provide comprehensive information about compensation reform for Virginia's work force. It will feature updates of the plan's ongoing implementation, provide training and communications tools, and serve as the central source of official information about this important change in the Commonwealth's human resource operations.
