City Staff,

Thank you for joining us for the Classification and Compensation Study Orientation sessions. For those of you who were not able to attend, a copy of the presentation slides is available by clicking here. Additionally, Koff & Associates (Koff) will provide a list of Frequently Asked Questions which will also be available for reference within the next few days.

Click here to view a form-fillable copy of the Position Description Questionnaire (PDQ) which Koff reviewed as part of the presentation. If you prefer to fill-out a paper copy of the PDQ, please contact Misha for the alternate form. All full-time benefited employees are asked to fill out a PDQ in order to contribute to the overall results of the study. PDQs can either be completed individually or in a group if there are multiple incumbents in a single position title. The information you provide about your job will assist Koff in creating accurate and updated job descriptions. Instructions on how to complete the PDQ are included in each section of the document.
