System maintenance studies are conducted to:

  • Ensure that job classes are grouped and paid appropriately,
  • Determine whether a class structure is current and adequate,
  • Ensure salary grades and relationships are appropriate,
  • Determine whether specific classes should be revised, abolished or created.
