CBR information and detailed calculation tools are available at www.finance.ucla.edu/composite-benefit-rate-assessment. Please visit the „How do I classify employees into a benefit set?“ section for assignment instructions and title code information. For any proposal addressed to the federal government, UCLA has negotiated an R&A agreement with the U.S. Department of Health (DHHS). These rates are recognized by all other federal authorities. When changing your budget, it is important to refer to the collective agreement to apply the right rate. You will find the various rates negotiated by the Confederation in UCLA`s most up-to-date collective agreement. Note: (1) Tuition fees and royalty rates are set and administered by the UCLA Graduate Division. (2) Equipment is defined as a single item that costs at least $5,000 and has a life expectancy of at least one year.
Items that cost less than the $5,000 threshold or are consumed quickly are considered delivery items. For these items, which cost less than US$5,000, R&A costs are estimated. Ancillary costs of salaries and salaries included in the budgets of non-university proposals should be calculated by multiplying the salary by the applicable CBR and the assessment of vacation provisions. The assessment of UCRP interest rates should also be taken into account when the source of funding is not federal. Price tables and examples are provided below to support the budget development process of the proposal. If you cannot determine the date from the CBR fee schedule below, use the tools and resources available on the UCI UCPath CBR website to determine the appropriate CBR. During the implementation of the UCPath, UCLA moved to the composite assessment of the rate of profit for benefits paid by the employer. UCLA has joined a long list of leading research universities using the CBR methodology for fundraising ancillary benefits. On the basis of groups of workers, the benefits paid by the employer are grouped together and calculated at a rate, instead of the multiple remuneration assessed under PPS.
CSRs are designed to be taken into account as a percentage (%) of all salary elements, with the exception of certain bonuses, incentives and Z payments, using a consistent method. When a project involves work on sites on and off campus, only one rate should normally be applied. This rate, the on- or off-campus rate, which corresponds to the location where most of the salary costs are spent. The use of on-campus and off-campus tariffs for a given project can only be justified if the following criteria are met: The UCI passed on 18 November 2018 to the Collective Profit Council (CBR) for revised proposals and budgets. . . .
