Many grants include funding for Personnel. Whether your grant is providing personnel dollars for staff, faculty, postdoc or student researchers will be determined in the grant proposal process. Principal Investigators (PI) should work closely with ORSP and Human Resources (HR) to determine needs and processes. Personnel can either be paid by regular payroll or by stipend forms both of which need to be approved through ORSP.
To hire new personnel, the PI should contact ORSP for additional details.
Pay for existing faculty is handled through the contract process and ORSP works together with Academic Affairs to accomplish this.
New work for existing staff
If a St. Kate's staff member is going to take on additional work on a regular basis via grant funds, the PI/PD must submit a new Personnel Action Form through HR. Contact ORSP before filling out the form, as ORSP will need to approve the changes and can help you with the process.
HR maintains a helpful webpage for the student employment process. Student Certifications and Time cards are all electronic. Additional information can be found on the HR website under Resources for Supervisors
Anyone from outside St. Kate's who will be paid as part of the grant will be paid as a Consultant. This may include speakers, consultants, external project evaluators, project managers, etc. This is the only form of payment for personnel that does not go through HR. The Consultant Form and accompanying W-9 will be available soon on the Grant Management forms page.
