From staff reports
On Friday, Executive Vice President and Provost Pam Benoit, Vice President for Finance and Administration Stephen Golding and Vice President for Research and Creative Activity and Dean of the Graduate College Joseph Shields sent an email to all faculty about grand-funded summer salaries.
Faculty on nine-month appointments have the option of earning summer salary paid out of grants for the time not covered by their academic year appointment. Depending upon the terms of their grants, under normal circumstances faculty can earn up to three months of grant-funded summer salary. However, due to the quarters-to-semesters transition, the interval between the end of the spring 2012 quarter and the start of the fall 2012 semester is less than three months.
To reflect the actual time available and remain in compliance with federal requirements, the maximum grant-funded summer salary in 2012 only will be limited to 2.5 months. Faculty who planned to pay themselves more than this limit in 2012 may need to work with the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs to re-budget their grants accordingly.
It is important to note that faculty accustomed to receiving more than 2.5 months of grant-funded summer salary will not see a reduction in pay from previous years. Faculty receiving the maximum grant-funded summer salary will see a total of 12.5 months of salary in 2012, as a result of the shift in the academic year pay cycle described in the memo recently circulated to faculty (i.e. 10 months of academic-year salary plus 2.5 months of summer salary).
