					              EFFORT AND SALARY WORKSHEET FOR FACULTY WITH 9 MONTH CONTRACTS

Step 1: Estimate Your Academic Year Effort
You have a 9 month contract that runs from August 23, 2004 to May 22, 2005. This is roughly 39 weeks or 194
working days. The start and end dates vary each year: see the Office of the Provost website for the Academic
Calendar for the current year's contract dates.

The percentage of your 9 month Academic Year that you plan to devote to this project is…
     5.00% 10.00% 12.50% 15.00% 20.00% 25.00% 30.00%                     40.00%       50.00%  75.00% 100.00%
This is ROUGHLY the following number of days during the 9 month Academic Year…
       9.70      19.40     24.25    29.10     38.80     48.50  58.20       77.60        97.00  145.50       194.00
This is ROUGHLY the following number of weeks during the 9 month Academic Year…
       1.95       3.90      4.88     5.85      7.80      9.75  11.70       15.60        19.50   29.25        39.00
This is roughly the following number PERSON MONTHS…
       0.45       0.90      1.13     1.35      1.80      2.25   2.70         3.60        4.50    6.75         9.00
Federal sponsors may require effort calculations to be ANNUALIZED: Multiply your Academic Year effort by 9 and
divide by 12 (N*9/12).
     3.75%      7.50%     9.38% 11.25% 15.00% 18.75% 22.50%              30.00%       37.50%  56.25%       75.00%

Step 2: Estimate Your Summer Effort
You have 3 months of summer, running from May 23, 2005 to August 21, 2005. This is roughly 13 weeks or 65
working days. The start and end dates vary each year: see the Office of the Provost website for the Academic
Calendar for the current year's contract dates.

The percentage of your 3 month Summer that you plan to devote to this project is…
    5.00% 10.00% 12.50% 15.00% 20.00% 25.00% 30.00%                       40.00%   50.00%  75.00% 100.00%
This is ROUGHLY the following number of days during the 3 month Summer period…
       3.25       6.50      8.13     9.75       13.00   16.25   19.50       26.00    32.50   48.75        65.00
This is ROUGHLY the following number of weeks during the 3 month Summer period…
       0.65       1.30      1.63     1.95        2.60    3.25    3.90         5.20    6.50    9.75        13.00
This is roughly the following number PERSON MONTHS…
       0.15       0.30      0.38     0.45        0.60    0.75    0.90         1.20    1.50    2.25         3.00
Federal sponsors require effort calculations to be ANNUALIZED. Your ANNUALIZED summer effort (N*3/12) is…
    1.25%       2.50%     3.13%    3.75%       5.00%   6.25%   7.50%      10.00%   12.50%  18.75%       25.00%

Step 3: Calculate Your Total Annualized Effort
Your total ANNUALIZED effort is the sum of your ANNUALIZED Academic Year and ANNUALIZED Summer effort.

Example: I'm devoting 25% of my Academic Year to the project and 50% of my summer.
My ANNUALIZED Academic Year effort is 25 percent times 9 divided by 12 =                         18.75%
My ANNUALIZED Summer effort is 50 percent times 3 divided by 12 =                                12.50%
My TOTAL ANNUALIZED EFFORT is therefore                                                          31.25%

Step 4: Calculate the amount of your Academic Year salary corresponding to your effort.
The amount of salary charged to your grant is based on your contract salary.

Example: My Academic Year contract salary for Academic Year 2004-2005 is $40,000. I'm devoting 25% of my
Academic Year effort to the project and charging 25% of my Academic Year salary to the grant.

Step 5: Calculate the amount of your Summer Salary corresponding to your effort.
Your salary for a month of summer effort is 1/9 of your contract salary for the Academic Year immediately preceding
the summer.

Example: If my Academic Year contract salary for Academic Year 2004-2005 is $40,000, then one month of summer
salary in 2005 is $4,444. In the example, I'm devoting 50% of my summer to the grant:
$40,000 divided by 9 months times .5 = $2,222.
Step 6: Estimate Your Salary for Future Project Years
ORSP typically budgets future year salaries using a 3-4% annual cost of living increase.
