OSP Excel Calculators Available to Help with Labor Distribution Scheduling

In response to this change, OSP has added a revised LD Calculator that automatically calculates LD percentages or dollars to schedule, based on input parameters (e.g., salary, effort level). You can download the new calculator or visit the LD Scheduling page. (On that page, you'll also find calculators for awards issued 12/22/11 through 1/11/14, and for awards issued 12/22/11 and earlier.)

Note - all of the calculators have tabs to allow you to calculate LD for EITHER over- or under-the-cap faculty salaries.
