One of the more common administrative transactions applied to grant activities is the assignment of personnel costs to or from the project.
This is requested when FUTURE salary payments (and associated benefits) are to be entirely or partially assigned to or removed from a particular grant activity's expenses.
To implement salary redistributions, follow the same procedure described on the Assigning Grant Staff page.
This is requested when PAST salary payments (normally, but not necessarily, with associated benefits) are to be added to or removed from a particular grant activity's expenses.
Processing of either transaction is accomplished through the submission of the Salary Reallocation Form . For instructions on how to fill out the form, please see Salary Reallocation Form Instructions .
1. The Principal Investigator (PI) prepares the Salary Reallocation Form. The PI signs and dates the form on the line marked "Budget Manager".
2. The PI sends the Salary Reallocation Form to ORS for review and signature.
3. ORS forwards the signed form to Restricted Accounting for review and processing.
4. The reallocation will take effect within 15 days of submission to Restricted Accounting.
Questions regarding this process can be directed to ORS or to Restricted Accounting.
