Extra Compensation

C140: Extra Compensation Paid by the University

Guidelines for Awarding and Processing Extra Compensation per FHB C. 140

  1. C. 140 authorizes Deans and Directors to compensate regular faculty (those with continuing appointments) for provision of professional services that are above and beyond the faculty workload required by virtue of their faculty appointment contract. See C.100, C.110 and F.100 for workload definitions.
  2. Deans and directors seeking to award extra compensation for special assignments should first establish, have on file, and make available for public review, guidelines describing who may receive extra compensation, for what, for how long, how much may be paid, and how the unit ensures that extra compensation is not being awarded for work that should be part of the workload required by the faculty appointment contract.
  3. C. 140 payments should never be added to the base salary of a faculty appointment contract. C. 140 extra compensation cannot be for work that is intended to be part of a regular faculty workload or of a recurring or long-term nature. Base salaries are recurring, whereas C. 140 compensation is temporary; thus they are paid and tracked through different mechanisms in Banner.
  4. Research, adjunct, visitors and other temporary faculty holding non-continuing appointments are not eligible for C. 140 payments; C.140 payments are currently only permitted for regular full-time faculty. Because recurring base salaries are not associated with temporary appointments, simply adjust the rate of compensation in any given contract period to reflect the workload associated with temporary appointments.
  5. C.140 compensation should not occur during the summer intersession while 9-month appointment workload requirements are not in effect. Instead, regular 9-month faculty are eligible for Summer Compensation. See Summer Compensation Guidelines for details.

Budgeting and Accounting for C. 140 Payments

Budgeting Account Codes:

  1. Use account code 20EA to budget pooled revenue for C. 140 compensation expenses, in both Budget Planner and during the fiscal year.
  2. Do not use Position Numbers in Salary Planner to budget C. 140 compensation of any type. Position Numbers should only be used to budget contractual base salaries and any SACs per  C.180.

Expense Account Codes:

Use the following account codes and mechanisms for expensing C. 140 extra compensation.

*Processing C. 140 Payments

  1. Use the Non-Standard Payment Form; to initiate C. 140 extra compensation payments using the process outlined in Administrative Policy 2615: Non-Standard Payment Processing, Sec. 1, “Extra Compensation.” See sample attached.
  2. Select the “Extra Compensation” Earn Code on the Non-Standard Payment form for all types of C. 140 compensation, including STCs.
  3. Use “Description of Work” (field #8) to briefly describe the extra work for which the compensation is being awarded, e.g., “faculty incentive” or “teaching overload.” Also describe the number of days the work requires; the total number of days of work receiving Extra Compensation in an annual contract period may not exceed the equivalent of one day a week.
  4. Use “Total Pay Amount” (field #9) to show the total payment to be received, and to show the math for how the total payment was calculated. C.140 compensation must be calculated as a daily rate and not as an FTE percentage.
  5. Indicate “Start Date” and “End Date.” It is possible for Extra Compensation to be paid out over several months and across multiple payrolls which might be preferred for semester-long teaching overloads.
  6. Obtain approval signatures through the Dean level.
  7. Electronically deliver the signed form attached to an EPAF, with attached written approval and description of work and its terms, to Faculty Affairs and Services Office for validation and Payroll processing.
  8. If using restricted funds from contracts or grants, follow additional OVPR Extra Comp Guidelines.

NOTE: The Non-Standard Payment form does not create an employment relationship with the University and may not be used to compensate non-employees for services provided. Consult with the Purchasing Department for guidance.

Examples

Treatment of Course Buy Outs from Sponsored Research:

1. Work sponsored by a contract or grant would normally be considered part of the contractual base workload. Occasionally grantors will permit extra compensation for research if it is built into the grant budget but approval from the OVPR is required before paying C.140 extra compensation with grant revenue. Course buyouts made possible by sponsored contracts or grants and/or revenue from other internal academic units which supports the base salary would normally not be considered extra compensation since effort certification for sponsored work must be based on a 1.0 FTE and the sponsored research is normally accounted for during the annual workload setting process. For example, C.100 and C.110 permit a reduced teaching load if extra funded research obligations are taken on. Thus, if teaching commitments continue in addition to extraordinary funded research obligations, you may wish to treat these situations as teaching overloads (account code 2004) rather than research overloads (account code 200C).
