2011-2012 Fringe Benefits Projection Rates

(effective 9/1/2011 through 6/30/2012)
See Salary and Benefits for current fringe benefits projection rates.


As components for University benefits may change in price annually, the Office of the President of the University of California no longer provides system-wide estimates for benefit rates and salary projections for use on extramural proposal budgets and for documentation of these proposed costs. Per RPAC Memo Operating Guidance No. 11-01 (February 1, 2011) benefit rates and salary projections are now to be determined and documented at the campus level.

The following composite campus benefit rates have been developed by the Office of Human Resources for the UC Berkeley campus and are now in effect. These rates include UCRP for FY 2012 and FY 2013.
