One of the graduate students scheduled to work on our proposal will transition to a part-time faculty appointment next year. How do I make sure the correct benefit rate is applied for her across the lifecycle of the project when her role is changing?

The benefit rate for personnel is determined by the UW sub-object code you select in Personnel Details. If an individual working on your proposal will change roles mid-way during the lifespan of your project, you need to add that person to your budget twice: once for each role they will occupy. Select the appropriate UW Sub-Object Code, or role, for the person, and then enter the % effort for each budget period. For periods in which they do not occupy the specified role, enter 0% effort. The correct benefit rate will automatically be applied according to the role and percent effort you specify.
