Purdue University Summer Effort Budgeting for Academic Year (AY) Appointments


In accordance with 2 CFR 200 Purdue University tracks and reports its professional personnel on a percent of effort and not on an hourly basis. The budgeting system used by Sponsored Program Services for creating proposal budgets automatically applies inflation to salaries and graduate fee remission on July 1st of each year. Current inflation rates are documented in the Inflation Rate Memo

Purdue University’s Summer Pay policy allows for faculty/staff on an academic year appointment who work during the summer to be appointed to summer payroll in accordance with Academic-Year Employment (Policy VI.F.12) and the Academic-Year Employment Pay Practices.  

Academic year faculty/staff are contracted for 18 weeks per semester or 36 weeks per academic year.  Therefore, the weekly rate used for budgeting and compensating for summer effort is 1/36 of their AY base pay or 2.778%. Budgets prepared for sponsored project proposals are estimated based on the number of days the faculty/staff propose to work during the summer period. 


AY Rate = $100,000

Summer Weekly Rate = $100,000*2.778% = $2,778

Summer Daily Rate = $2,778/5 = $556

*Inflation is applied July 1st of each year.
