Changes to pFACT - 20 Sept 2010

1. Updated Clinical Lecturer/Research Associate pay scale

In light of the revised Clinical Lecturer/Research Associate pay scale effective from 1 April 2010, the pay scale will be updated in pFACT to reflect this. This change will be made to pFACT on Monday 20 September between 8:30am and 10:30am during which time the system will be vulnerable.

Once these changes have been made, users are requested to press the recalculate button so that these new rates can be applied to their proposals. Any proposals that are currently with the Research Office will be recalculated and the necessary amendments made to proposals.

2. New Pay scales for Research Nurses

After consultation with the Human Resources Division, two new pay scales will be added to pFACT in order to encompass Research Nurses. These new scales will be:

  • Research Nurse, Grade 7 (NUR-RS-07)
  • Senior Research Nurse, Grade 8 (NUR-RS-08)

Please note that these grades will attract FTE related costs, incremental dates will be anniversary of appointment, the standard August pay uplift will apply and there are no ghost points.

These changes will be made to pFACT on Monday 20 September between 8:30am and 10:30am during which time the system will be vulnerable.

If you have any queries please contact your School Team at the Research Office https://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/research/contact/List.aspx or the pFACT helpdesk on pFACT.helpdesk@admin.cam.ac.uk
