State Employee Salaries & Wages

Broadband Classification & Compensation Program (Florida Dept of Management Services) -- "Broadbanding is a classification system that replaced the old state classification system by collapsing numerous classes with similar duties into broad occupational categories. Along with the broad categories, broad pay ranges were also created within this system. In essence, the Broadband system is a method of grouping like duties and pay while providing a high degree of flexibility to agencies in order to meet the needs and demands of the state workforce."

  • Classification Plan -- "Contains the class specifications for the Career Service and Selected Exempt Service classification systems."
  • Pay Plan - Class Designations -- "Contains the Schedule of Salary Ranges for classes in the Career Service, Selected Exempt Service and Senior Management Service systems."
