Upward Mobility Program

The Upward Mobility Program (UMP) offers assistance to permanent employees in certain entry-level classifications who have demonstrated knowledge, skills and abilities that would allow them to advance to higher-paying technical, professional and administrative (TPA) classifications.

Government Code 19401 requires that each State Department have an effective UMP for permanent employees in the designated occupational groups.
