Tidemark calculates several object codes used for budgeting. To run this calculation, look for the action called "Calculate All Indirect Costs." This action is available on multiple panels.
Running this action will calculate indirect costs for all PAs and PTAs in your organization (based on the slice on your page). This will apply to your entire budget, not just the data visible on the panel you are on. Once the calculation is complete, you will be able to refresh your page and immediately see the calculated values.
The UBO will run this calculation for the entire university every 2 hours during the day to ensure that data is updated frequently.

You will not be able to manually budget to these codes. They will always be calculated by the system.
The rate for these calculations is available in the “02. Setup and Fund Management” process in the Departmental Assumptions page. Unlike other types of assumptions, the rates for these calculations are set by the UBO, and may not be edited.
In general, the amount budgeted for related expenses is multiplied by the rate to determine the calculated cost. For example:
$ budgeted for RBE salaries * RBE Fringe Rate = 51750
Some calculated codes have additional restrictions based on specific PTAs or Award types. See the attached matrix for more detailed information. If you have questions, contact the UBO for assistance.
