Funding Model and Billing

Funding Model Overview

The Human Resources funding model has two components:  funds provided by institutional sources, such as the Chancellor’s Financial Plan, FAS, the EVCP and the Deans’ Offices, and funds paid by departments based on their headcount of each population included in the model.

The HR Funding Model Subcommittee, composed of representatives from each Dean’s Office, the EVCP, FAS, and basic science and clinical departments, reviews the funding methodology and budget annually and provides recommendations to the HR Advisory Board. The UCSF HR Advisory Board reviews and endorses the recommendations of the HR Funding Model Subcommittee. Final approval authority for the HR funding model rests with the SVC of Finance and Administration.

The headcount for each department is assessed each year on December 1 for the upcoming fiscal year beginning July 1.  Department bills are based on their weighted headcount for each population included in the model (see pricing chart below). Billing is monthly, and the procedural details for FY 17–18 can be found here.
