The salary and related fringe benefit charge resulting from vacation time is charged to a Benefits Office budget instead of the department/division budget.
When an electronic time sheet (E210) is approved with vacation time, an automated salary transfer takes place to charge the vacation salary and related fringe benefit to the Benefits Office budget and credit the originating budget.
Financial Implications in KSAS
The funding to the Benefit Office to pay for the vacation charges comes from an increased fringe benefit rate. The Dean’s Office pays this when appropriations with the higher rate are made to the department budgets.
See an example of how the financial equity is achieved between the Dean’s Office and the departments in KSAS. Although this process is cumbersome, it is currently the only solution available from the Controller’s Office.
