I am unable to enter the full % of effort that will be charge to the grant or contract in KC due to the 5 character limitation inclusive of the decimal point. The system forces you to input the % of charge effort to a lesser amount; which does not reflect the true cost share amounts. How should this be entered into KC?
When you cannot get the percentages to equal the percent effort you have calculated, use the salary cap as the IBS (Institutional Base Salary). You will also need to be sure to add the PID chartstring to the cost share tab in KC prior to routing. SPAC will use this PID to set up the companion over-salary-cap account during the award set up.
Please see additional instructions for adding Cost Share to KC proposals. This was presented during the SPA/SPAC quarterly meeting last November.
