  • Promotions in academic rank not printed in the Kansas State University FY 2014 Annual Budget should be submitted on a Position Data Sheet (PER-36) (pdf) with a supporting contract. Complete the top section, marking "Update", indicate new job code and job title and use "TTL" (Title Change) as the action reason code.

Changes in Status

  • Employees changing from non-budgeted position to budgeted position for the 2013-2014 fiscal year will require submission of an PER-38 form (pdf). If the contract is changing, we will require a copy of it also. Complete the top section marking "Update", indicate effective date, and use "Transfer" (XFR) as the action code and "Employer Request" (ERR) for the reason code. Indicate the new position number to be used.
  • If a new budgeted position must be created, please submit a Position Data Sheet(PER-36) (pdf) to the Budget Office for approval and on-line entry.

Summer Salary for Grants and Contracts

Salary during summer is calculated based on the faculty member's academic year salary and should never exceed the academic year salary (although could be less) per OMB Circular A-21, Section J, 8, d, (1), "Charges for work performed on sponsored agreements by faculty members during the academic year will be based on the individual faculty member's regular compensation for the continuous period which, under the policy of the institution concerned, constitutes the basis of his or her salary. Charges for work performed on sponsored agreements during all or any portion of such period are allowable at the base salary rate. In no event will charges to sponsored agreements, irrespective of the basis of computation, exceed the proportionate share of the base-salary for the period."

Summer Pay

The following manual calculation may used to determine the rate of pay for six summer pay periods:

The annual salary divided by 9 months equals the monthly rate. Monthly salary multiplied by the number of summer months (3) divided by the number of summer pay periods (6) equals summer bi-weekly pay.

Example: For a 9-month employee with an annual salary of $69,000.
$69,000 / 9 months = $7,666.67 monthly salary
$7,666.67 x 3 summer months / 6 pay periods = $3,833.34 compensation rate per pay period.

The compensation rate throughout the year is $3,450 ($69,000 / 20 pay periods = $3,450). This does not mean the employee is receiving a higher salary in the summer. The difference occurs because during the academic year we are spreading the 9-month salary over 20 pay periods which is longer than 9 months.
