New funding may be either base-building (ongoing) or one-time (for one year only). New base funding is added to original base funding when there is an existing budget. New funding is typically the result of SJSU budget allocations that are determined by the President, but new funding may also result from allocations made by a division to its departments.
New Base Funding
New base funding awarded to a division through the annual SJSU budget process will be added to the division’s base budget by the Budget Office, once management decisions are finalized. The Budget Office will contact the recipients of any new base funding to identify chartfields for allocation. New base funding can be for Salary & Wages (S&W) and/or for Operating Expenditures & Equipment (OE&E). If any funding is for new S&W, benefits funds must also be provided to the University Benefits Pool. For current benefit rates, see Staff Benefits.
New One-Time Funding
When one-time funding is allocated through the annual SJSU budget process, it is provided for a designated/specific use. One-time budget augmentations may be allocated by the Budget Office; they can also be allocated by Division Vice Presidents or from another campus department. New one-time funding can be for Salary & Wages (S&W) and/or for Operating Expenditures & Equipment (OE&E). If any funding is to be placed in S&W, a portion of the new funding must be identified for staff benefits. For current benefit rates, see Staff Benefits.
