How do I determine salary figures in grant proposals for current faculty and staff?
For current employees, we can contact Human Resources for base salary figures and (assuming the grant funding period will be the next fiscal year) add 3%. For new positions, Human Resources can supply a figure based on the type of position involved. In multi-year proposals, increase the annual salary by 3% each year.
For release time, do I request salary for myself or for an adjunct replacement?
The funding sources establish what they will allow. If they will pay your salary and you have an academic year teaching load of 24 credits, each credit hour release is equal to 1/24 of your annual base salary. Adjunct pay rates are established in the faculty contract.

In multi-year proposals, increase the fringe benefit rate by 1% each year.

Yes. Because most faculty choose to be paid on a twelve-month basis, extra health insurance benefits are not deducted during the summer. Use a rate of 16.5%.
