The information below should be used as a general guide; however, it is a good idea to check faculty compensation figures with associate provost Trish St. Leger
(7224) and support and technical staff compensation with Jill Dinski
(6668), manager of HR operations.
B. Administrative, Support, and Technical Staff
If the identity of the person to be hired is known, use exact salary figures. Otherwise, use an appropriate estimate for salary. Check your figures with Jill Dinski
(6668). Use the following percentages for fringe benefits:
- 31.8% of salary for administrative employees
- 41.4% of salary for support and technical employees
- 33.5% of salary for interns
C. People Who Are Not Ongoing Employees
If the non-Colgate employee will work less than 1,040 hours per year under the grant, charge the grant 10% of salary
for fringe benefits. If the person will work 1,040 hours or more, use the percentages in B, above
D. Students Summer research assistants
typically conduct research for 8 to 10 weeks:
- Stipend: $450 per week for summer 2017, 2018, 2019; $475 per week starting summer 2020.
- Fringe benefits: 10% of stipend.
The Office of Human Resources is responsible for all on-campus student employment during the academic year. Student wage rates are set according to the requirements of the position and the number of years the student has held that particular position at Colgate. No merit pay can be offered, and no fringe benefits may be charged for academic-year student work. For current rates, see “Student wage rates” under “Getting Paid” on the student employment
E. Facilities Department
For construction or infrastructure needs, your budget will most likely reflect per-job charges. Contact Dan McCoach
(6046) in the facilities department for assistance in developing an estimate of job costs. Allow 2-3 weeks for estimates.
