On Monday March 26th, at 10:30 in GP 2025 we are conducting a one hour ethics discussion session led by Dr. Robert Laird from the Psychology Department. This training is required as part of UNO’s Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training. RCR training is required for all individuals (faculty, staff and students) who receive a salary or a stipend from the National Science Foundation or U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (which includes the National Institutes of Health); the funds can either be directly from these entities or indirectly through a state or private entity.

If you have already attended one of these sessions or watched the DVD “The Lab,” you do not need to attend but you are welcome to attend if you desire. Space is limited so you must register. If you have students working with you that must complete the RCR training, make sure they are aware of this requirement. If you anticipate receiving funds, please attend. The session is open to everyone even if you do not receive funds from the entities listed above.

To register, please follow this link: Professional Development Registrations. (Navigation in SharePoint is: Research, Professional Development, Professional Development Registrations.)

You will need to add a new item – click New on the menu bar and then New Item. Fill in the requested information and click OK. You will receive an email stating that your registration is in process. Once approved or rejected (if the session is full) you will receive another email.

If you have any questions, please contact Carol Mitton at extension 5546 or cmitton@uno.edu.

Fringe Benefits are calculated on all regular employees of the University, including postdoctoral research associates and intermittent employees. Benefits are not calculated on graduate assistants or student workers. The fringe benefit rate is never negotiable.

The fringe benefit rate is projected to be 39% effective July 1, 2012. Please begin to use 39% for full time employees on all proposal budgets and continue to use 8.2% for intermittent wage employees. You should continue to include a 1% fringe increase in your annual budgets for future fiscal years. We recommend you use a 40% fringe benefit rate for fiscal year 2013-2014 and beyond.

This is the rate to use until a new fringe benefit rate is negotiated. We will send the approved rate agreement and post on the ORSP Proposal Development website when Financial Services receives it from the Department of Health and Human Services.
