How to assign current active DePaul Employees (Faculty or Staff) to a grant account (either partially or entirely). For guidance on hiring and compensating new employees on the grant please refer to Hiring Grant Staff.
Owing to the structure or process of DePaul position management, the procedure to assign staff to a grant account depends on the magnitude of the staff member’s assignment: 100% Assignment or Partial Assignment.
Those DePaul staff or faculty, whose salary will completely be covered by a new grant account, must have their current positions associated and paid for with the new grant account. This is done in Campus Connect.
The form will proceed through an electronic approval process. When complete, you will be notified by E-mail and the next pay cycle will reflect the change.
A common procedure is to assign only a percentage of a salary to a grant account to reflect only a partial time commitment to the grant activities. This commonly occurs when a faculty member is given a course release or other salary buyout that is covered by an external source. The “principal” internal account assigned to the position remains unchanged.
