The first page is the original proposal which increases steps zero and one (This model used the existing FY18 schedule and FY18 FTE). Impact: $143,381
The next page increases the current schedule by 2%, increases step zero and uses FY18 FTE to calculate the increase. Impact: $58,078
The next page increases the current schedule by 2%, increases step zero and uses estimated FY19 FTE to calculate the increase. Impact: $62,329
Lastly, the final three pages show the 2% schedule with the enhancement to step zero, but comparing FY18 staff to estimated FY19 staff, showing the overall cost when considering staff movement, retirements, etc. Impact: $76,504.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In all scenarios where step zero was enhanced, current staff moving to step one were not negatively impacted. The gap between the two steps was closed by $1,200, however, it was not subtracted from step one, only added to step zero.
