  1. If the PERF person had converted to TIAA-CREF this amount should be 11.25%.
  2. Health insurance should be a flat amount of $346 per year (half the amount for one semester and nothing for summer only). It should be placed in the fringe benefit category of the budget and included in the base for calculating indirect cost.
  3. This is a projected amount since fees have not been established for 1991-92. It should be proportioned on a monthly basis for projects less than one year and placed in the "Other" category of the budget. No indirect costs are calculated on fee remissions.
