bullet Salary Lines

Every Purdue employee paid off of the project must be budgeted within individual salary lines. Salary lines display multiple pieces of information used in the calculation of the budgeted salary amount

Salary Type Job category of the person budgeted. Field controls Fringe Benefit and Inflation rates
Period Denotes if the salary line is Calendar, Academic or Summer salary

End Date End date that the salary line is applicable
Months Person months
Requested Salary($) Salary amount for the specific salary line being budgeted
Fringe Benefit($) Fringe benefit amount for the specific salary line being budgeted
Funds Requested($) Salary amount + Fringe Benefit amount for specific line

bullet AY/Summer Salaries


Academic and Summer salaries are calculated in separate lines so that accurate calculations may be completed. If Summer salary is budgeted and it falls between two blocks of Academic time, a third line may be required to account for all Academic salary.

bullet FY Salaries


Fiscal Year or Calendar salaries are encapsulated within one line since the monthly amount calculated will be consistent for all months within the specified Project Period.

bullet TBA Salaries


TBA salaries are calculated in the exact same fashion as named employees. The only differing factor is that instead of the HR fed name of the individual, pre-set TBA records are used to account for the requested funds.
