• Examples
• Implementing in HRMS
Introduction
• Original document created in FY 2003 by A&S HR
Center
• Collaboration between A&S, Faculty Affairs, OCG, and
Controller Jud Hurd
• Revised in FY 2012 due to Internal Audit of Faculty
Summer Pay
• Approved by Provost for all units on campus
• Applies to all faculty members paid on an academic year
contract
• 12-month faculty members cannot earn additional salary
over the summer months
Goals
• Compliance with Federal and University policies
– Federal Polices
• Office of Management and Budget Circular A-21 – Cost
Principles for Educational Institutions
• National Science Foundation Proposal and Award Policies and
Procedure Guide
– University Polices
• Additional Pay to Regular and Research Faculty (July 2001)
• Boulder Campus Policy on Compensation for Faculty Member
Serving as Chairs, Faculty Directors, Associate and Assistant
Chairs. Associate Faculty Directors, Associate and Assistant
Deans, and Institute Directors
• Ensure faculty member is paid maximum allowable
summer salary
AY Research vs Summer Research
• AY research is part of teaching faculty workload:
teaching, research and service
• Inappropriate for faculty to “bank” time during AY and be
paid in summer
• Only 9 month faculty can have paid summer research ––
but only for work performed during that summer
• Can earn up to additional 3/9ths summer salary
• Summer salary is governed by federal guideline
standards (not just by university policy)
OMB Circular A-21
• Establishes principles for determining costs to grants
• Section J.10.d.(2) address periods outside the academic
year
• Limits the amount of salary a faculty member can charge
to a grant
• Permits salary to be charged as longs as:
– Total compensation confirms to established university
polices, and
– Consistently applied
Budget and Salary Expenses
Boulder policy:
• Charge salary to grant where effort is expended
– and
• Paid effort must be supported by proposed salary budget
and available funding
• In other words
– Effort devoted to grant should be consistent with plan
proposed and agreed to at the time of the award
• Effort on grant with insufficient budget cannot be paid by
different grant
Planned Time Off
Boulder policy:
• Teaching Faculty members do not accrue paid leave
• Cannot take significant time off while paid from grant
• Can adjust work schedule to allow for insignificant time
off as long as total effort remains the same
• Effort for month’s summer salary must be equivalent to
month’s AY effort
Most Important Thing to Remember
Summer is all about EFFORT
• While charging 100% of his/her salary to grant
in any given month, a faculty member cannot:
– Expend efforts towards non-grant related activities
– Writing new grant proposals
– Develop new course curriculum
effort requirement in the summer has been
met, meaning --
UNLESS:
— paid effort matches AY level and this other activity is
over and above that expectation
Additional Limits
HOWEVER:
Need to keep in mind –
NSF and NIH have their own limitations
Specific Agency Limitations
NSF Policy Change
• Effective January 2009
• Limit of 2/9ths changed
– Old policy - allowable during the non-academic year
period
– New policy – allowable in any one year
• Includes salary received from ALL NSF
funded grants
•
NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedure Guide, Part II - Award & Administration Guide,
Chapter V.B.1.a.(ii).(a)
Specific Agency Limitations
NIH Salary Cap
• Was capped at $199,700 for AY11
• Cap reduced to $179,700/year as of 12/23/11 for FY12
• Limits how much monthly salary NIH will support
– If faculty 1/9th salary > a month’s capped amount, can
charge only the capped amount to NIH
– Even though < full dollar amount, it represents 100%
effort
• Fortunately – only affects a few faculty
– Is the exception, not the rule for Boulder campus

Base for 3/9ths Calculation
• Use the base academic year salary
• Not included in calculation
– Overload appointments
– Continuing Education appointments
– All administrative stipends
– Monetary awards
– Endowed professorships
Example A:
• Professor X’s total compensation
– AY salary = $72,000
– Taught one Fall overload class = $5,000
– Associate Chair stipend = $1,800
• Max Summer Salary (3/9ths) = $24,000
– $72,000 / 9 months = $8,000
– $8,000 x 3 months = $24,000
• Compensation from overload class and Assoc.
chair stipend not included
Summer Compensation Earned
• What counts towards the 3/9ths limit
–
–
–

All compensation that requires expending effort

Timeframe of 3/9ths Calculation

1/9th Limit
• No more than 1/9th of AY salary may be charged

– AY teaching responsibility begins mid-August
• Calculate daily rate then multiply by number of
workdays in summer session portion of month

Both months have 22 workdays (non-leap year)

August 20xx: 7 workdays ($363.64 x 7 = $2,545)
May 20xy: 15 workdays ($363.64 x 15 = $5,455)
$2,545 + $5,455 = $8,000

I understand and agree that only my activities directly related to my respective sponsored project(s) will be charged to those projects. Such activities
include research and other activities included in the project statement of work, writing progress reports, attending project-related conferences and/or
holding research meetings or training (including working with participating students).
I understand that non-related activities including, but not limited to, preparing competitive sponsored projects proposals, non-sponsor-related research/activities,
vacation, attending department/school/college faculty meetings, non-project teaching, teaching preparation, administrative work, university service, and
attending non-sponsor-related conferences will not be charged to sponsored projects.
I also understand that NSF limits salary compensation to senior project personnel to no more that two months of their regular academic year salary in any one
year unless additonal compensation is approved by NSF. This limit includes salary compensation received from all NSF-funded grants.
If my proposed summer salary allocation of effort is not consistent with the actual allocated effort then I will request that the charging of the sponsored accounts
be changed to reflect the actual allocation of efforts, including moving some of my time to non-sponsored funding sources or unpaid time if appropriate.
I also understand that I will need to follow normal procedures and complete an effort report (PERS) following the summer term.
I have read and understand the Guide to CU Boulder's Policies Regarding Summer Pay for Faculty on 9-month Appointments located on the first tab of this
worksheet.
If a vacation is planned during the summer months, are the dates of the vacation in a month you are being paid from a sponsored project? Yes No (circle answer).

Multiple Appointments
• Faculty often have multiple appointments in
different units
• No central location for payroll process
– Not all appointments are processed by same person
– Or at the same time
– Increases chance of non-compliance
• Faculty members rostered home is final decision maker
if multiple appointments violate 1/9th or 3/9ths limits
Summer 2011 - 2012
• Due to leap year, need to adjust August 2011
date for end of summer to August 11, 2011
• August 2011 and May 2012 both have 23
working days
• August 2011 extend summer to 8/11/11 allows
for 9 working days
• May 2012 working days assigned to summer is
14 days
• August 9 working day + May 14 working days =
23 days
