Please enter the percent effort and click calculate. The person months for 3, 9, and 12 months will be displayed simultaneously (rounded to hundredths place).
3 Month Summer Term
9 Month Term
12 Month Term
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|
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).
