Procedure 905.1

The following procedures describe the appropriate use of stipends for College of Eastern Idaho salaried employees. These forms of compensation may be appropriate for faculty or salaried staff. A stipend is a payment in addition to the base pay for an assignment which is not part of the employee’s ongoing appointment. A stipend is used to separate the portion of compensation paid to an employee for the effort and responsibility related to a special assignment. If the special assignment ends, the salary should revert to the salary for the ongoing appointment.

Interim Appointment

An employee may be appointed to a position in an interim capacity. There will be no change to an employee’s base pay during an interim appointment.

Faculty and Adjunct

Adjunct faculty will receive compensation through a stipend for teaching loads. Full-time faculty will receive a stipend for any overload during an academic year.  

Additional Duties for a Fixed Period of Time

Occasionally an employee is assigned added duties for a fixed period of time. For example, an employee might be given some responsibilities of a vacant position without being appointed to the full position in an interim capacity. A stipend is appropriate in this situation. When the vacant position is filled, the stipend is discontinued. If the vacant position is not filled and the duties are permanently assigned to the employee with the stipend, a salary adjustment or reclassification should be considered to replace the stipend.
