Section 659.026(3)(b) (3) - Executive Staff Compensation

DIR uses the State of Texas Position Classification Plan (plan) as compensation methodology.  The Plan is designed to ensure that executive staff are classified appropriately and consistently according to their education, work experience, skills, and work performed. Additional consideration is given so that the salary ranges for positions are competitive with similar positions in the public and private sector.  The plan helps to promote salary parity for similar positions across agencies, allows agencies to recruit and retain employees, and provides salary administration guidelines for similar positions across agencies to make individual pay decisions.  DIR is statutorily required to follow the plan for all agency employees. 

The maximum salary for DIR's Executive Director is established in the General Appropriations Act (GAA). The DIR's Board is authorized by statute to conduct a performance review on the Executive Director to allow for compensation changes up to the maximum established in the GAA. Considerations during the performance review consist of experience, leadership abilities, market analysis of relatable private sector occupations and comparable sized agencies.

When setting salaries for all other executive staff, the Executive Director considers an individual's performance, experience, education, licenses, certifications, and DIR's budget. 

Section 659.026(3)(b) (4)-Executive Staff Supplement Eligibility
