Frequently Asked Questions

Question Answer

Why does the Burden Schedule Multiplier show different rates for different tasks? 

Why is the Burden Schedule Multiplier different from the award indirect cost rate?

A burden schedule can be applied at the award, project, or task level.  All awards have a burden schedule applied, but there may or may not be burden schedule overrides applied at the project or task level.  The Burden Schedule and Burden Schedule Multiplier show the lowest-level information. 

  • If there is a task-level override in place, those columns will show the task-level information. 
  • If there is no task override, but there is a project-level override, those columns will show the project-level information. 
  • If there is no task- or project-level override, the award burden schedule will be shown.

For more information about burden schedule overrides, see Understanding Burden Schedules on the SPF STaRT tool.

PPM Project and Task Summary

The Project and Task Summary provides a high-level overview of your project with PPM based balances.

  • The Summary for Non-Sponsored Projects displays costs on a year-to-date (YTD) or inception-to-date basis depending on the project classification. Generally, projects for annual operations are reported on a year-to-date basis and projects funded one time or irregularly are reported on an inception-to-date basis.  Line of Service projects are reported year-to-date but include an informational column for Contract Revenue.  Service Agreement projects are reported inception-to-date and include balance calculations based on both the Budget Balance and the Contract Revenue Balance.  See Balance Calculations for more information.
  • The Summary for Sponsored Projects can be viewed with or without Budget Periods and with or without Tasks:

Frequently Asked Questions

Question Answer
Why don't my numbers match throughout each section of the dashboard?

There are a few situations in which numbers may slightly differ among sections of the dashboard. Examples include:

  • Operating Expenses in the Payroll Details section exclusively report general liability expenses while the Cost Details section typically includes additional expenses such as supplies.
  • Personnel Expenses do not match if salary is processed in UCPath and attempts to charge a project after its end date. That salary amount posts in Oracle to your department's default project.  The salary will appear in the Payroll Details table, which contains UCPath data, but not in the Cost Details, which contains Oracle data.
  • Benefit Expenses do not match in Fiscal Year 2021 for Vacation Reimbursement, which posted in Oracle as Personnel Expense and in UCPath as a Benefit Expense. This is corrected for Fiscal Year 2022.
  • Personnel, Benefit, and Operating Expenses may not match for a specific Direct Retro that was approved after the UCPath deadline. In these cases, you see the costs in the Cost Details section, but will not see the same costs in the Payroll Details section until the next month.
  • Summer salary benefits posted at the wrong rate in 2020 and 2021.  Corrections appear only in the Cost Details section (Oracle), not in the Payroll Details (UCPath).

The Payroll Reconciliation Toolkit provides great insight and links to other supporting documents for resolving payroll data discrepancies between systems or reporting. 

Also refer to the Correcting Discrepancies Between OFC General Ledger (GL) and UCPath Labor Ledger (DOPE) Job Aid.

What data is NOT included in the Payroll Details on my dashboard? Expenses that post to Oracle from a system other than UCPath do not appear in the Payroll Details.  These include, but are not limited to tuition remission, graduate and undergraduate student stipends and fees, NGN (Next Generation Network), and HS-TSC (Health Sciences Technology Services Charge).  These items appear directly in the Cost Details section of this dashboard and may be associated with a person's name in the Oracle financial ledgers. 

Payroll Projections

Cost Type Descriptions

The Payroll Projections section provides data for each employee as outlined in the table.

Cost Type Data Included
Personnel Expenses Salary amount calculated based on data entered in UCPath, including compensation amount, FTE percentage, job status, and funding distribution. Projection ends at the earliest of the budget period end date, job end date, or funding end date.
Benefit Expenses Calculated as Personnel Expense times the Composite Benefit Rate in effect for the person/job.
Operating Expenses Includes Next Generation Network (NGN), General Liability Program (GAEL) expenses, and Health Sciences Technology Services Charge (HS-TSC).  These are calculated using the Personnel Expense amount, the funding distribution, and rules in place for whether or not these expenses will be charged for a particular person on a particular funding source.
Tuition/Fee Remission Calculated using the tuition remission rate in effect for the graduate student, distributed across all job codes where tuition remission is applied and across all funding sources.  For example, if a student is simultaneously employed in a TA position and a GSR position, the full tuition remission amount will be distributed ratably across both positions, and further distributed between the funding sources applied to each position.
Indirect Costs Calculated against Personnel Expenses, Benefit Expenses, and Operating Expenses using the indirect cost rate in effect for the award/project/task.

EPS payroll projections

Frequently Asked Questions

Question Answer
How is it determined when to end payroll projections? Payroll projections end at the earliest of the Budget Period End Date, Job End Date, or Funding End Date (entered in the UCPath Funding Entry).  If any of these dates occur mid-month, the projection is prorated for the last month.
Are salary escalations applied? Personnel Expenses are determined based on data in UCPath.  If a future compensation rate change has been entered in UCPath, it will be captured on the report.  The report does not artificially escalate salaries.
Will the projections capture future-dated funding changes? Yes.  If a future dated Funding Entry has been entered in UCPath, the report will capture the funding distribution change.
How can changes be made to the payroll projection end date? The payroll projection extends through the earliest of the Budget Period End Date, Job End Date, or Funding End Date.  The latter two of these dates are entered by departmental personnel in UCPath. If a person is leaving the position or will move to a different funding source at a future date, the Job End Date or Funding End Date can be updated in UCPath.  Changes in UCPath will be reflected in the Payroll Projections the next day.
