Estimating and Managing Committed Effort
Estimating Committed Effort Overview
Estimating Effort in Sponsored Agreement Proposals
Given the nature and
complexity of a sponsored agreement, faculty and staff should
be reasonable in estimating committed effort in relation to
their other respective planned University compensated
activities included in their Institutional Base Salary (IBS).
(a) IBS for faculty includes payment for the assumption of on-going administrative duties, howsoever paid, such as those of a department chair, associate dean, or director.
(b) Medical School faculty practice salary is included in IBS if the salary is set at the beginning of the Fletcher Allen Health Care (FAHC) fiscal year and will be paid to the faculty member through the Fletcher Allen Health Care fiscal year. If any part, or all, of faculty practice plan salary is not guaranteed through the Fletcher Allen Health Care fiscal year, it is not included in the IBS.
(c) Salary that is incentive practice income under faculty practice plans is never included in IBS.
(d) Except as noted in subsection (a) above, IBS excludes fringe benefits, reimbursed expenses, temporary additional salary for work outside the term of one’s regular appointment, such as teaching continuing education classes, and other University-compensated activities not included in an employee’s performance review or evaluation.
(e) Income earned through non-University employment and consulting for third parties is not included in the IBS.
