CSU Operating Fund Benefits Budgets


The university maintains a centralized staff benefits pool. Once a month, after actual salary and benefit expenses are posted to the ledger, the Budget Office runs a process that allocates to each Dept ID a budget equal to their benefits expenditure for the month. This process is completed prior to month-end close.

When changes are made to salary budgets funded with the CSU Operating Fund, adjustments are also made to the University Benefits Pool. The actions that cause adjustments to the University Benefits Pool are described in detail below. Adjustments are based on the benefits rates shown below.

The 2017/18 budgeted benefits rate for Temporary Faculty is 45%. 

The budgeted benefits rate for fiscal year 2017/18 is 47%.
