Faculty and Staff Salary

Faculty and Staff Salary Calculation

  1. Ask the INE Business Office or Proposal Office for an up-to-date hourly salary figure.
  2. Multiply this number by 173.33 hours. This will give you salary per month.
  3. Multiply by the number of months in your budget.
  4. Multiply this figure by the appropriate leave benefit percentage (see table below).

    Always include leave benefits with salary. This gives you the “loaded” salary.

    For example, 3 months of a faculty member’s time might be: ($60/hr)(173.33hrs/mo)(3 mos)(1.017) = $31,730 in loaded salary

  5. Take the loaded salary and multiply it by the appropriate staff benefits rate (see table below).

    For example: ($31,730)(34.1%) = $10,820 in staff benefits.

    List this figure on the “fringe benefits” line of your budget.

    APT Staff Example: ($25.26/hr)(173.33hrs/mo)(6mos)(1.217)=$31,970; staff benefits = ($31,970)(42.8%)=$13,683

    A Classified Staff Example: ($20.21)(173.33hrs/mo)(.5 mos)(1.222)= $2,140; staff benefits = ($2,140)(52.0%)= $1,113

    All staff salaries should increase by 2% each year. All CEM faculty salaries should increase by 2.5% each year. All graduate student salaries should increase by 2% each year.

Facilities and Administration Calculations

Facilities and Administration (F&A) costs are calculated by:
  1. Add up all project direct costs (total direct costs, or TDC)
  2. From this total, subtract student tuition, equipment costing $5,000 or more, and subcontract amounts that exceed $25,000 over the life of the project. The remaining amount is your modified total direct costs (MTDC).
  3. (MTDC)(49.5%) = F&A costs
  4. F&A Costs + TDC = Total Project Request
  • F&A rate DOD projects is 60.3%
  • F&A rate for proposed research projects beginning on or after 1 January 2011: 49.5%
  • F&A rate for proposed sponsored training projects: 35%.
  • F&A rate for proposed other sponsored activities projects: 34.2%.
  • F&A rate for proposed research projects funded by Alaska State agency dollars: 25%
  • F&A rate for proposed training projects funded by Alaska State agency dollars: 12%
