Wage Bases

There are three basic salary (wage) bases: Calendar Year, Academic Year, and Summer Term. Here is a month/week/days breakout for each:

Summer Term (SM) 3 Months 13 Weeks 90 Days
Academic Year (AY) 9 Months 39 Weeks 273 Days
Calendar Year (CY) 12 Months 52 Weeks 365 Days

Examples

Example 1: A PI on an AY appointment at a salary of $63,000 will have a monthly salary of $7,000 (one-ninth of the AY). 25% of AY effort would equate to 2.25 person months (9x.25=2.25). The budget figure for that effort would be $15,750 (7,000 multiplied by 2.25 AY months).

Example 2: A PI on a CY appointment at a salary of $72,000 will have a monthly salary of $6,000 (one-twelfth of total CY salary). 25% of CY effort would equate to 3 CY months (12x.25=3). The budget figure for that effort would be $18,000 (6,000 multiplied by 3 CY months).
