Jobs Summary: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds have significantly aided the research mission of Northwestern University by providing salary compensation for individuals directly involved in research, both at Northwestern and at consortium institutions, as well as at the vendor organizations who provide goods and services in support of that mission. Northwestern has employed a standard methodology for determining jobs created or retained, based on guidance presented by OMB. Jobs are reported in aggregate for the grant, comprised of calculated figures for hourly and salaried employees at Northwestern plus the reported jobs created or retained by subrecipients. The number of Northwestern hourly employees will be calculated as the number of hours charged to the grant divided by the standard hours in a full-time schedule for the period. The number of Northwestern salaried employees will be calculated based on the paid effort charged to the ARRA grant divided by the total salary. The time span used for determining FTEs created/retained varies by grant or contract. It is based on the number of days between the award start date (or pre-spending start date) and quarter end date (or award end date). Following is a list of descriptions for jobs created or retained, in whole or in part, by this ARRA funded project: Limited Research Assignment, Temporary Research Worker. (Total jobs reported: 1)
