WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission says a consultant's survey of higher education salaries in the state isn't usable.
The commission hired Minneapolis-based Fox Lawson & Associates to conduct the survey to set new salary schedules for college and university classified and non-classified employees and faculty.
Commission spokeswoman Jessica Tice says the consultant's faculty salary data doesn't differentiate between each institution's peer groups. She says other elements of the consultant's report also are incomplete.
Tice says the information doesn't satisfy the requirements of a 2011 state law that requires the commission to update the salary structure.
An after-hours call to Fox Lawson's Minneapolis office wasn't immediately returned Sunday.
